Retain healthcare are currently recruiting for a home care co-ordinator to assist two other experienced co-ordinators in our Cheltenham branch. This role will be a maternity cover position to provide support with our homecare contracts across Gloucestershire, supporting adults who have been discharged from hospital and re-establishing their independence in their own homes.

This role will be office based, although you may be required to go out into the community for visits or assessments.

This role would be suited to someone with experience of working in care, preferably at a team leader level.

We are looking for individuals to join our forward thinking team, who share the same values as we do. This incredible opportunity will be providing a crucial role to support the NHS this winter. In these unprecedented circumstances your support with outcome focused care within the local community, has never been more crucial.

This role will include:

  • Updating care plans
  • Co-ordinating homecare staff
  • Ensuring our clients are receiving the highest possible level of care at all time

Our homecare service allows our clients the option of returning to the comfort of their own home to recover from an accident, illness or operation. Our Support Workers work with people to regain their confidence and skills required to live as independently as possible in their own home, working towards goals set out upon the start of their care package..

These goals can range from support in preparing meals and household tasks to personal care and will be tailored around improving quality of life for those we work with.
