Adult Social Care jobs with other providers

Join the rewarding career of care work

The national campaign to recruit more carers has encouraged us to localise the search for more carers to join this wonderful career, which can be so rewarding. We are advertising provider jobs for those who have an interest in the Wokingham Borough area.

  • Are you looking for a change in career?
  • Are you interested in caring and helping people to retain dignity, self worth and enjoyment each day?
            

Types of care work

Below is a list of the type of jobs our providers offer which may help you to source the right employer for you:

  1. Home Care (also called Domiciliary Care): This is when a care worker supports someone in that person’s home. Usually things like washing, dressing, eating, getting up and later to bed. Care workers work on their own or in pairs and travel around (by foot or car) in the day/evening
  2. Care Home: There are 20 Plus care homes in the Borough, mostly for people who are elderly, frail, with dementia and/or need nursing care. The workers here do similar tasks to home care but work as a team in one building
  3. Learning Disability Care workers: There are care workers who support people with learning disabilities lead interesting lives, as independently as possible. Some need personal care (washing, dressing etc.) and some just need help to travel around, meet friends and family, do activities around the house etc.
  4. Day Services: There are day centres for older people and people with learning disabilities. The staff put on activities and support with personal care as required

New providers and vacancies will be added as they are offered.

Care work

As healthcare improves people are living longer. However their ability to carry out day-to-day tasks can become difficult for them due to age or other conditions which they may develop.

Care workers are important to help residents facing these challenges in Wokingham carry out day-to-day tasks and remain independent in their own homes. 

Care working involves meeting a wide range of people from different backgrounds and supporting them with tasks like:

  • Eating and drinking
  • Drinking and bathing
  • Toileting
  • Helping with medication
  • Social interaction
  • Meal preperation
