The following list illustrates the type of duties that a Support Worker may be asked to undertake. At all times a Support Worker must comply with Be Well Care (BWC) training and guidelines and policies.
Every person we support has their own needs and personality, and your responsibilities will reflect that. Here are some of the areas that you are most likely to be involved in:
Health and wellbeing. This might mean supporting someone to make positive choices about eating well, taking exercise and maintaining good hygiene. It might also involve providing emotional support, or helping them with dressing, washing and personal care.
Leisure and social activities. Whether it is taking part in a yoga class, painting, or going out for a coffee, be prepared to get stuck in! Like all of us, the people we support need to do the things they enjoy and get involved in the local community to stay happy and healthy.
Daily living skills. Things like paying bills, attending appointments, shopping, cooking, and cleaning can be challenging for someone with a learning disability, so you’ll be on hand to support and encourage them.
Safeguarding. People with learning disabilities can be vulnerable to abuse or exploitation. As their support worker you’ll make sure their rights are upheld and they are being treated with consideration and respect.
There will be some important administration to do as well, such as dispensing and recording medicines for the people you support and maintaining accurate records and reports. Everything you do should be in line with current legislative and care standards.
Qualifications and experience
Experience in care is required to become a care worker at Be Well Care: What is important is a commitment to supporting people in their homes to get the most out of life. We make sure our staff have all the training they need to do their job well.
