Care-Team Coordinator for a Gentleman living at home with Advanced Parkinson’s

  • Full time
  • £30,000 – £33,000
  • Based in Newington, Edinburgh
  • Closing 15th November 2021

Looking for a manager to join an existing care team who work with a 63-year old man with advanced and complex Parkinson’s. The care takes place at his home, not at a care facility. Currently the team consists of live-in carers, night-time carers and relief care to cover breaks, working together to provide 24 hour, 7-days a week continuous care.

The day-to-day management of care is currently done by the family, however due to other commitments we are now hoping to find someone professional to step in and take over the management. In this role you will:

  • Liaise with the current care team
  • Liaise with care companies who provide some of the care (mainly relief care)
  • Liaise with healthcare providers, pharmacies
  • Schedule and manage weekly staffing rotas
  • In case of illness or emergency, provide cover for the care team OR source emergency care from a care company
  • Be onsite ~10 hours per week during Monday - Friday, whether to provide relief care or to simply check up on how the current team is managing and the gentleman is doing.
  • Recruit new carers (self-employed or via care companies) and manage training of new carers
  • Support the management of medication
  • Support with basic admin tasks for the running of the house

Essential applicant requirements:

  • Working knowledge of the care industry in Scotland
  • Familiarity with laws and regulations surrounding care & nursing
  • Experience of working as a carer or as part of care management team
  • Great communication skills
  • IT-literate with basic MS Office tools (Excel, Word)
  • Valid PVG/Disclosure Scotland certificate
  • Self-employed (this is not a PAYE role)

Desirable aspects:

  • Drivers license preferred, no car needed
  • First-aid trained

You must be flexible with timings. Due to the nature of the role, managing and/or providing emergency cover will be a key part of the job. This is not something which happens on a regular basis, however team members can call in sick at very short notice. This is reflected in the pay, due to the on-call nature of the role. However, the better you are at managing the team and care companies, the less emergency cover will need to be provided directly by yourself.

This role will be self-employed, paid at the end of each month. You will not be responsible for paying the care team or care companies - the family will still manage all the finances.
