Community Support Worker Jobs in Bedford

Francis House Homecare is one of the largest providers of home care for Bedfordshire. We’re currently recruiting for Community Support Workers to work across the county, delivering practical and emotional support to clients in their own homes.

This is a great opportunity to take on rewarding work with adults who need your help. We provide home care services for people with a learning disability, physical health issues, or mental health problems. We also provide care for elderly people who need support in order to continue living independently in a familiar environment.

The Community Support Worker Role

Our care services are tailored to each client. You will work on a ratio of either 1:1 or 1:3 and the tasks you carry out will be determined by an individual care package. You may be required to help clients with their shopping, accompany them to social events such as the cinema, or support their attendance at an appointment or for education courses.

Some of our clients need help with their personal care, and with light household tasks such as cleaning, preparing light meals or budgeting. You’ll work alongside clients to come up with ideas for activities, and you’ll ensure that they always have the opportunity to exercise choice in these discussions.
