Examples of types of work
Home Care and Activities
We support people to live their best lives in a home away from home on either a full time or short-term basis. You will be there to offer support with practical tasks as well as prioritising their emotional well-being by being a champion for them always. From helping people take care of themselves with basic tasks like washing and personal care, dressing and eating to just having fun playing games, doing hobbies or simply hanging out together.
Out in the community
Being active and enjoying the community around us is really important for the people we support, as it is for us. The people you’ll support enjoy a range of activities; going to the cinema, swimming pool, cafes, local attractions or simply to the park. We have so much to enjoy together, right on our doorstep – it’s just a case of choosing what and where!
Having a learning disability can make some tasks harder than most people would find them. Your role will be to support and encourage people to grow their independence bit by bit over time. You will support people to use public transport, go shopping, cook and look after themselves.
Keeping people safe is our top priority and it is everyone’s responsibility at Lifeworks to make that happen. The people we support have a learning disability and sometimes other physical needs and disabilities which can make them potentially more at risk to harm. You will provide support to keep them safe and treated well. You will need to provide the highest of care standards and keep good administrative records to make sure those we support are safeguarded at all times.
