I have the ability to manage challenging caseloads, while staying focused on giving a high standard of care to each individual. I constantly maintain and demonstrate a positive attitude towards clients and their families, staff and visitors. I am keen to find a challenging position within a health care setting where I will be able to continue to increase my work experience & develop my abilities. I was studying at College where I was looking to expand my studies as would like to be a social worker in near future. As a skilled person I am looking to extend my knowledge and experience on this role as I thoroughly enjoy working with this particular group, with a reputable organisation like Council, where my abilities will not only be recognised but also rewarded. After reading the job description I am convinced that my background, work experience and qualifications all combined make me suitably qualified for the specific requirements. I am currently working in Hospital as Mental Healthcare support worker as bank. My duties include assisting patients with daily living activities such as eating, showering and toileting, taking the patient's signs such as blood pressure and temperature. I am also delivering reports to Case Managers and reviewing any important changes in the patient's condition as well as attending meetings with other professionals, assisting nurses and other staff when needed, also helping tidy the patient's rooms. I have worked for 3 years 10 months as a Family Support Worker in Women’s Aid based in the refuge. My duties include, supporting women and their children living in refuge, who have different problems related to domestic violence with support needs and housing related issues. And also give them support to enable them to live more independent lives based on choices about their future. Not only that, I have also worked in the health and social care field for 17 years as a relief support worker in Adult Individual Supported Living services with Council. I was supporting individuals with various disabilities, ranging from mental health problems, learning disabilities and challenging behaviours. My duties include supporting clients with learning disabilities, assisting with personal hygiene, dressing and meal times. I was also changing beds, general cleaning and personal shopping for residents, providing support to my patients/clients and helping them in every day duties. Providing stimulation in activities to keep patients motivated, taking patients out to different places, dealing with relatives and helping them to understand how to support relatives. Helping with learning and development and also dealing with client's moneys and administer medicine. Helping with housing, bills and other personal issues as required. Teaching basic duties to individuals on how to look after themselves with encouragement and also advocating for clients. Throughout this time spent working as a Health care/Relief/ Family Support Worker I have been through training, where I developed a greater understanding of the needs of individuals who have found themselves in care or refuge. It is imperative that I present myself professionally, I am not only accountable for my own behaviours, but has an interest of providing an excellent standard of support to the individual in my care. In my role as a Family/ Support Worker it is of the utmost important that I work within the guidelines, policies and procedures which are in place, implementing where and when possible, promoting free and informed choices, enabling each individual to reach their maximum potential, always being aware of the importance of working within safe practices, following through risk assessments, risk management and support plans. My understanding while working with learning and mental health and also women and their children, is that it is essential that I not only spend time conversing with the individual in my support to gain as much information about their needs, but also can be invaluable to liaise with external agencies who are involved in providing a service/advocacy and counselling to the individual, through collating all possible information, I then can begin to undertake the role as a support worker, while reviewing individual needs and my delivery of support on an ongoing basis. I believe that I am a conscientious, professional, caring, reliable committed team member. I work well when met with new challenges and have a thirsty for learning. I believe while working as part of a multidisciplinary team, communication is a vital part in the day-to-day running of the organisation, while supporting and learning from each other as a team. I hope I have sufficiently conveyed my interest and suitability for care role. I look forward to meeting with you in the near future to discuss the details of your needs.
