Care Co-ordinator for an individual with disabilities
As care coordinator you will be coordinating a small team of part-time carers, who care for a gentleman with disabilities in his own home in Cambridge. There are only 1 to 2 care staff on shift at any given time.
The gentleman has a very calm and kind personality, and no behavioural problems. He is a wheelchair user, and cannot communicate verbally but communicates on many other levels. He is a Christian, so his wish is for his home to be a place where the Bible is read to him, prayers are said with him, and he is supported in his chosen Christian belief and values. He requires 24/7 care and currently has an amazing team of carers who support him very lovingly for the long-term.
We are looking for a very special and caring person to provide leadership to the care team on daily basis, with significant support from Mannawell’s directors and the person’s family.

- This role is part-time. A daily 1 to 2 hour visit to the care team onsite in North Cambridge is required daily during the week and some weekends. Hours can be flexible, and will be discussed during the interview. The care coordinator will be available to be contacted by the day-time carers for urgent queries during their shifts.
