An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Reablement Team, working as a Reablement Officer.  We are recruiting to 3 posts each for 37 hours a week.  We currently have posts available based both in the North (Kings House, Bedworth) and South (Heathcote House, Heathcote) of the county, but you will be expected to cover the whole of the county. The job role requires you to be available to work on a rota of late shifts 12pm – 8pm, and early shifts 9am – 5pm, along with one weekend in 7 and bank holidays.  This can be discussed in more detail at the interview.

As a Reablement Officer you will be working with customers in their own homes to help them achieve independence with daily living tasks.  You will be the first to visit a customer and together you will complete an initial assessment, risk assessments, and identify the customer’s daily living tasks that can be reabled.  You will create a support plan where Reablement Assistants will support the customer to achieve their outcomes which are reviewed during the service and you will also assess and prescribe items of equipment to enable independence and reduce the need for ongoing support.

During the customers Reablement journey you’ll review and revise the customers Reablement support plan at agreed intervals and ensure the customers’ needs are being met appropriately.  The overall objective is to ensure the customer has gained a level of independence that is suitable long term and to ensure the support plan reflects the customers assessed level of need, their aims, goals and desired outcomes during their time with the Reablement service.

 

About us:

Reablement focuses on promoting independence by supporting people to do as much as possible for themselves both physically and psychologically.  It aims to do this by supporting people to continue living at home, preventing admissions into hospital or residential settings, and facilitating timely discharges.

We believe that by supporting customers to identify and achieve their personal goals and outcomes, and by embedding personalisation, customers will have choice and control over how their support will be delivered, this will have a positive impact on health and wellbeing.

Reablement is a short-term service working with customers for up to 6 weeks.

 

The Role

The job role requires you to be available to work a rota of late shifts (12pm – 8pm), and early shifts (9am – 5pm), one weekend in 7 and bank holidays.  This is done on a rota basis and a day off will be given in the week to take into account working a Saturday.  This can be discussed in more detail at the interview.

 

Key Responsibilities

On a daily basis the role requires you to liaise with colleagues, customers, health professionals and the public, either face to face or over the telephone, so it is important you have a courteous, professional manner.
