Do you feel passionate about caring and supporting people, and enabling them to live a more independent and fulfilling life?
As a Lead Adult Care Worker you will make a positive difference to someone’s life when they are faced with physical, practical, social, emotional or intellectual challenges. You will be expected to exercise judgement and take appropriate action to support individuals to maintain their independence, dignity and control.
By providing leadership, guidance and direction at the frontline of care delivery, you will be instrumental in improving the health and wellbeing of those receiving care and support.
The Lead Adult Care role has increased responsibility at Level 3, and apprentices may develop into key worker or support worker roles, which mean that they may have more autonomy or responsibility than an adult care worker.
Lead Adult Care Workers job roles are varied and determined by the type of service being provided and the person supported, but may include work in residential or nursing homes, domiciliary care, day centres or some clinical healthcare settings.
