Worcestershire County Council has launched a recruitment campaign to bolster a team in Adult Social Care that ensures residents can live independently for longer.

The County Council is committed to supporting its residents to live healthy and independent lives in their community.

There are just over 20 posts being recruited for, mainly Promoting Independence Assistants (PIAs) and also a number of supervisors and managers.

The PIAs will sit within the Council’s new Reablement Service and offer short term, intensive support to adults who need it in their own homes. The service has been developed in partnership with NHS colleagues and care providers.

Councillor Adrian Hardman, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care, said: “Our number one priority is to ensure people can live as independently as possible.

“These roles will enable us to make sure people are receiving the right support at the right time to help them live independently and do things for themselves where they can.

“I’d urge anyone interested and keen to work in this new, exciting service to have a look online and apply if they think they are the right person for the job.”

Reablement supports people to do things for themselves and promotes independent living. The support offered to people from the County Council will prevent the need for any unnecessary admissions either to hospital or residential/nursing care.

Full paid for training will be offered to successful candidates and they will work as part of a multidisciplinary team including Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Seniors and Team Leaders.
