Two gentlemen and a lady who Dimensions support at their home in Southbourne, Bournemouth would like a new Support Worker to join the team who enable them to live an independent life.

The gentlemen who are aged in their 50’s and the lady who is in her 40's, and have learning disabilities, would like to meet a part-time or full time Support Worker who would like to get involved in activities such as:

  • Ensuring two of the people we support get to and from day centre 3 times a week
  • Listening to music
  • Day trips out to museums and other places of interest (we recently went to the tank museum)
  • Walks down at Hengistbury Head and along the local beaches
  • Meals out at local pubs and restaurants
  • Swimming at Pelhams Leisure Centre

Both of these gentlemen and the lady use wheelchairs to mobilise (one out of the house the other at all times) but as you can see this does not stop them living an active lifestyle.

There will be a variety of shifts available between 07.00-22.00 (you do not have to work long days unless you wish to do so).

Dimensions are pleased to offer Support Workers a pay rate of £12.19 per hour for this role.

Support Workers may also have to assist with finances, meal preparation and assist the people we support with their personal care.
