Intensive Support Worker 1/2
Are you passionate about helping others achieve?
The individuals we support want the people who support with them to listen, care for them and most importantly help them enjoy the same things you enjoy doing.
Do you think you could be the intensive support worker they are looking for?
Support workers at Home From Home Care help individuals to get involved in a huge range of activities – from the adventurous, such as rock climbing and horse riding, to the more day-to-day, such as shopping and supporting them to clean their home.
We all take for granted the ability to go shopping, for a walk in the park or catching up with friends. For many vulnerable people these everyday activities are beyond their reach, we support individuals to overcome significant barriers and live an ‘ordinary life’.
