If you are looking for a rewarding role or to kick start your career in Health and Social Care sector this position might be for you! We are looking for an individual who loves helping people in need to join our fantastic Independent Living team in Reading.

You will provide reactive, focused and flexible support to adults, either

  • following a hospital stay, to enable early discharge when clinical needs have been met;
  • or to those living in the community to prevent hospital admission.

You will assist the Independent Living Service Coordinator by undertaking duties required to meet the service users’ needs in order to re-enable service users to remain in their own home and prevent hospital re-admission.

You will respond to referrals from Clinicians and Community Health Professionals and will be required to have the ability to assess service users’ needs, complete and follow a support plan for the individual. In addition, you will be providing practical and emotional support in the service user’s own home and signposting to other services where appropriate to enable the individual to live independently in their own home.
