About the role
We are looking for someone to work in a task centred way, primarily with older people who are at risk of hospitalisation or becoming dependent on statutory and/or institutional care. With our support people can regain their confidence and have more control over their lives. You will take referrals from GP surgeries and Kettering General Hospital, enter details on a local computer system and subsequently ensure that all records are accurate and up-to-date.
The role involves visiting clients in their own homes to monitor the service as well as making telephone check calls to offer support. In consultation with the Service Manager you will play an active role in staff and volunteer recruitment, retention, training and development.
We are looking for someone educated to A level or equivalent with experience of working with older people and who can demonstrate the ability to work in a non-judgemental manner. You must be able to listen to others and absorb information as well as be able to instil motivation in others. A good knowledge of services available to older people in Northamptonshire is desirable. You must be a car driver with access to your own vehicle. If you are motivated by challenge and enjoy seeing problems through to their solution, this is the role for you.
