He/she shall be directly accountable for providing high quality support to people, working together with their support team and Home Support Leaders to ensure that goals and objectives are met. Specifically, the Direct Support Worker is responsible to:

  • Provide direct support in a manner that is consistent with CPH philosophy and personalized support plans.

  • The ability to manage and respond to crisis situations that may arise

The Direct Support Worker reports directly to the Home Supports Leaders. There is approximately 4-10 full-time and part-time positions on the support team. Therefore, a team approach to providing high quality, person centered support is essential.

Good external relations must be developed and maintained with CLSD social workers, health care professionals, organizations and community contacts, including employers.

  • Always working towards the individuals overall satisfaction. The support person understands that he/she is coming into the home/life of the people served by CPH. The recognition of this must remain the foremost in our minds. We must therefore respect the wishes in their service provision within the parameters of safety and quality of life. Those parameters must be decided at the team level with the support of the person, the family/personal network, funding bodies and community supports (where available).

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:
