24 May Community Support Workers and Senior Community Support Workers for Bedford and Surrounding Areas
Now we’re all feeling the pinch thanks to high energy costs and spiralling food prices, more and more people are looking for ways to make some extra money. Perhaps you’re one of them. Typically, the people who work as Community Support Workers are looking for flexible working hours, in-house training, and regular opportunities to earn. Sound familiar?
Many of our Community Support Workers started out with no qualifications, a few hours they could work each week, and low expectations of the pay and conditions. What they discovered was something quite different:
“To be honest I thought caring was a rubbish job with rubbish pay but I soon discovered different. It’s a great team at Francis House, with really dedicated people. The training was brilliant; really set me up. The pay is good, and it arrives promptly – there’s never any need to chase. I get to work shifts that suit me, and I’m respected. Best of all, I really like the job and I feel that I do it well.”
What Does a Community Support Worker Do?
Everyone deserves the opportunity to live a fulfilling and independent life. A Community Support Worker helps vulnerable people to do just that by providing tailored support to them in their own homes.
The people Community Support works with may have learning difficulties, mental health issues, they may be elderly or have physical disabilities. Some of them will be living with dementia, or Alzheimer’s.
The practical aspects of a Community Support role will differ from one client to the next, but they will normally include cooking light meals, shopping, personal care, light domestic duties, and monitoring hydration/medication.
