Job Role:
Age UK Wakefield District provides quality services to individuals across the district in a variety of ways. The Home Support Service is vital in providing practical support to those individuals whose circumstances are changing and now require a varying level of support to remain independent. The role is to provide that support in a caring and considerate manner, promote choice and control and meet express needs and wishes whilst reinforcing the values of the Charity and the important work undertaken for older people in the district. The approach we take is flexible and based on the principle of putting the needs of the individual first; this means while our care is clearly planned and detailed we offer our time and flexibility to best meet the needs of each person.  This varies from domestic support, through to medications and low level personal care.

The service is CQC registered with an overall GOOD rating in Feb 2018.

If you are committed to providing a quality service in a manner that promotes dignity, respect and independence for older people we would like to hear from you.
