Home Support Worker (BB-43F73)
Found in: Neuvoo Bulk AU
Eyre and Far North LHN has moved to a Consumer Directed Care model for the provision of aged care, disability and support services. This allows consumers to maintain greater control over their lives by allowing them to make choices about the services they receive and who delivers those services. Consumers are encouraged to actively participate in identifying and setting goals, and to determine what level of involvement they want in managing their own care arrangements.
Under this model of care, the funding associated with the role of the Community Support Worker is controlled by consumers, rather than by the health provider. This means that consumers have an active role in determining the shifts that are available, the duties that are performed, the frequency of demand for the service, and the choice of provider organisation.
The Community Support Worker is integral to supporting this model of care by providing services including personal care, cleaning, meal preparation, transport and social support, to persons who are aged, frail or disabled and who wish to remain living in their own home with some assistance, or are living in a Residential Aged Care facility.
The South Australian public sector promotes diversity and flexible ways of working including part-time. Applicants are encouraged to discuss the flexible working arrangements for this role.
Appointment will be subject to a satisfactory Criminal History Screening/Check and specific immunisation requirements.
Suitably qualified Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants are strongly encouraged to apply and will be given preference as a special/equal opportunity measure under section 8(1) of the Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth), and sections 34(2) and 56(2) of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA).
Eyre and Far North LHN welcomes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and values the expertise, cultural knowledge and life experiences they bring to the workplace. Eyre and Far North LHN is a culturally inclusive work environment that is respectful of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. Job Ref:725425
