This is an exciting new opportunity to support people in Midlothian as part of a multi-disciplinary discharge to assessment team. If you are interested in supporting people home from hospital and helping them resettle into the community then this could be the job for you.

We are looking for a flexible and committed individual to join our Independent Living team in Midlothian. You will provide reactive, focused and flexible support to adults either following a hospital stay to enable early discharge when clinical needs have been met or to those living in the community to prevent hospital admission. You will assist the Independent Living Service Coordinator by undertaking duties required to meet the service users' needs in order to re-enable service users to remain in their own home and prevent hospital re-admission. Referrals may require you to take the patient home from hospital to enable their discharge. You will also be providing practical and emotional support in the service user's own home and signposting to other services where appropriate to enable the individual to live independently in their own home.
