We are looking for a highly motivated Recovery Worker to join a dedicated team delivering high quality, person-centred support to five adults within their home (a small care home registered with the Care Inspectorate). You will become part of a dynamic service demonstrating professionalism, safeguarding, reflective practice, and continuous service improvement.

By collaborating with individuals, their families, and multi-agency professionals, you will strive to promote positive mental and physical wellbeing through preventative and early intervention approaches. Recovery often involves supporting individuals during periods of distress, so it is important to do so sensitively with individuals when developing coping strategies and accessing the right services at the right time.

In doing so, you will support individuals to increase their life skills in line with their preferences and the Health and Social Care Standards. This often involves a variety of duties, including medication support and domestic tasks.

Promoting communication is essential, so individuals can meaningfully participate in decisions and choices that matter to them, whilst expressing their own personality and talents. As a key worker, you will assist individuals to progress and review their recovery via a range of coaching approaches and toolkits.

The service also facilitates joint activities so that individuals and their recovery team can learn together about health, safety and wellbeing. Our focus is on maintaining high standards of infection prevention and control in line with National Covid-19 Guidance for Care Homes.

It is an exciting time to join our service due to the easing of restrictions and with a range of collective initiatives underway, including exploring the night sky, astrophotography, and our fab magazine.
