What Is A Support Worker?

A Support Worker is someone who looks after the well-being of people in their daily lives. They help people with varying degrees of physical disabilities, mental health needs as well as learning disabilities to live as independently as possible within the community. The support provided by Kingdom Support and Care is for all ages from children to adults and can be both physical and emotional. Support is not provided in the same way for every individual it is tailored to their own needs, wants and desires. Being a Support Worker is a challenging but rewarding role that allows you to make a real and positive difference in the lives of others.

On a day-to-day basis, support worker duties could include but not limited to, helping with meal preparation, household chores, administering medication, managing finances, accessing community facilities, going shopping, meeting friends, visiting the doctors and providing general emotional support.

Personal care can be involved, but to varying degrees as each supported individual is different. For some it will just be a reminder and for others it may involve assisting in the showering, getting dressed or help with eating and drinking, all the daily tasks that so many of us take for granted.
