We have a new and exciting opportunity within Fife Carers Centre. We are seeking a Hospital Service Coordinator to join our team.
Fife Carers Centre is a well-regarded and well-established organisation that has supported thousands of families and unpaid carers throughout Fife since 1995. The vision of Fife Carers Centre is to ensure that unpaid carers throughout Fife are valued, recognised, and supported to have equal access to a good quality of life that is not prejudiced by their caring role.
You will be based at the Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, with travel to Community Hospitals throughout Fife and The Fife Carers Centre, Kirkcaldy.
Your work will include providing a sensitive, person-centred support service for carers where the cared for person is in hospital approaching discharge. You will oversee an established Hospital Based Program and supervise a team of 4 Hospital Carer Support Workers over a variety of locations, working closely with Fife Carers Centre Manager to establish continuity of support for Carers after discharge.
You’ll be assisting carers in presenting their views to the appropriate planning authorities and decision makers, as well as giving one-to-one support to carers in order that they know how to access services helping them to develop self-advocacy and, where necessary, advocate on the carer’s behalf, and very importantly providing a listening ear for carers.
