Be a Care Hero in Salford
Pease note: the employer for these roles is not Salford City Council but independent care providers throughout Salford.
Hours, location and salary will be determined by the individual care provider.
During this time of great uncertainty, we need to look after the most vulnerable people in our communities.
Many require support with their every-day tasks to ensure they are able to lead the quality of life they deserve.
Independent Adult Social Care organisations across Salford urgently need more kind, caring and compassionate people to join our care heroes in supporting those that need it most. You don’t need any previous experience working in adult social care - training will be provided.
Are you able to talk to and listen to people to understand what they need and ensure the best possible outcomes for them?
Do you have great communication skills, patience and enjoy working with other people?
You will be helping residents with practical tasks like washing, dressing, going to the toilet and having a meal. You’ll get to know each resident and provide them with friendship, familiarity, emotional support and company, making sure each individual is well cared for and has their needs met. Working in a care home can feel like a small community, or a large family.
You will visit people in their own homes, to help them with practical tasks like washing, dressing, going to the toilet and having a meal. While you’re helping the person with their every-day tasks, you’ll have a chance to chat and build a relationship. This is an important part of the job as it makes the care you give more personal.
You will be supporting people with learning disabilities or with mental health problems. You may be providing support to three, four or five housemates. As well as helping with shopping, cooking and cleaning, you’ll be making sure individuals are safe and well - that could be healthy eating, encouraging exercise and joining in community activities. Part of your rota may be staying overnight.
Our Adult Social Care services are continuing to operate 24/7 through the hard work and dedication of our amazing care heroes. They are demonstrating the Spirit of Salford every day by caring for some of our most vulnerable residents. Now, we’d like to invite you to become one of our care heroes.
