Crossroads Care Kent deliver responsive services for Carers, and the people they care for in their own home. We provide support for people to come home from hospital as soon as possible, and a rapid response service to help Carers and people with a wide range of disabilities and health needs, to stay at home in the event of something happening to either of them; such as a sudden emergency, or illness.
As part of our experienced Urgent Care Team you must be confident and capable of working alone. You will be expected to work as part of a rota, which could be days or nights to support a family Carer, the person they care for, or both, depending on their situation. Ideally you will have a Health & Social Care NVQ Level 3 or equivalent. Caring and compassionate with an ability and willingness to provide good quality replacement care, including all aspects of personal care is essential.

Our staff provide high quality, respite breaks supporting Carers across Kent. Our aim is to enable Carers to have a regular break from their caring role, whilst providing a positive caring experience for the person they care for. We plan for our staff to have their own portfolio of regular clients in their local area where possible, enabling strong caring professional relationships to develop over time. Most families benefit from a whole, morning, afternoon or evening visit every week or weekend – visits last around 3 hours and are not quick half hour task calls.
We offer regular visits with longer calls, great team and on call support, guaranteed hours, good quality paid training, contributory pension, competitive pay and excellent mileage as well as paid travel time.
A caring, compassionate manner, flexibility and own car and telephone are essential to all roles.
