CatholicCare Hunter-Manning is a not-for-profit provider of a range of services to individuals, families, and groups. It is an agency of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle. There are approximately 160 employees operating in over four separate sites across the Hunter and Manning regions.
Due to an exciting implementation of a new therapeutic care model, a number of Care Team Worker roles at CatholicCare have been created.
The position of Care Team Worker will be responsible for the provision of therapeutic care and support in a home like environment to people with disabilities (intellectual, physical and mental) who reside in CatholicCare’s community based supported accommodation homes. Care Team Workers actively work with the people we support to assist them to live as independently as possible in the community.
Day-to-day tasks include supporting people to dress, maintain hygiene, cook and clean and assist the people we support meet their hopes, dreams and aspirations as identified and outlined in their person centred plans. CatholicCare supports the ethos of the NDIS and promotes choice and control for each of the people we support.
Care Team Workers must have a strong commitment to working as part of an end to end therapeutic care team where reflection leads to better practice and the needs of the people we support are the primary consideration at all times.
