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.
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.
At Francis House we respect our Community Support Workers by offering a fantastic range of benefits:
Does this sound like you?
If you share these values we’d love to hear from you – even if you have no experience as a carer. We offer in-house training and you’ll be mentored. All applicants will need to have transport as our clients live across Bedfordshire.
Our Care Quality Commission report recognises Francis House Homecare to be providers of a consistently good service. This demonstrates our commitment to taking our responsibilities as care givers seriously, and providing high quality personalised care for everyone we work with.
All the staff at Francis House Homecare complete mandatory initial training, and then ongoing supplementary courses throughout the year. Specialist training may include: managing challenging behaviour, stoma care, dementia, autism, PEG feeding. We also provide training for Positive Behaviour Support planning, and specific mental health conditions.
