Community Support Worker - Casual Job no: 840412 Work type: Casual Location: Murray and Mallee Categories: Community Services Riverland Mallee Coorong LHN, Riverland Community Health, Barmera Salary: $27.94 - $28.24 per hour + 25% casual loading - Casual (up to 31 July 2024) - WHA3 Overview Riverland Mallee Coorong Local Health Network (RMCLHN) has moved to a Consumer Directed Care model for the provision of aged care, disability and support services. This allows consumers to maintain greater control over their lives by allowing them to make choices about the services they receive and who delivers those services. Consumers are encouraged to actively participate in identifying and setting goals, and to determine what level of involvement they want in managing their own care arrangements. Under this model of care, the funding associated with the role of the Community Support Worker is controlled by consumers, rather than by the health provider. This means that consumers have an active... role in determining the shifts that are available, the duties that are performed, the frequency of demand for the service, and the choice of provider organisation. The Community Support Worker is integral to supporting this model of care by providing services including personal care, cleaning, meal preparation, transport and social support, to persons who are aged, frail or disabled and who wish to remain living in their own home with some assistance or are living in a Residential Aged Care facility. Community Support Workers need to be flexible, conscientious and empathetic and be able to work autonomously in the community. They will work closely and collaboratively with the consumer, their family and other health professionals, to provide quality outcomes and maintain consumer independence where possible. RMCLHN supports staff to further develop their skills across a variety of areas. Ongoing education is encouraged and enables staff to provide quality and responsive services to consumers.
