The purpose of a Care Assistant is to support individuals and to help them live as independent and active lives as possible by supporting them in an enablement focussed way. The tasks you undertake will be agreed by the service user and the Care Manager once they have assessed the service user’s needs. This will be written down as an Individual Task Planer. This document will specify your duties for each individual service user you work with and it will be your responsibility to follow this and other supporting documents, reporting any changes in need that you or your service users identify. The Care Assistant will be responsible for meeting the personal needs of service users. He/she will assist in meeting the care support and daily living needs of the service user and to provide care and any additional support as required in accordance with BC & SS's care standard.
