My Care My Way
My Care My Way (MCMW) is a new, innovative way of working with people over the age of 65 with complex needs and conditions. The person is at the centre of holistic care planning across organisations such as health, social care and the voluntary sector. This way of working is a more coordinated, consistent way of providing care for people over 65 with long term conditions in West London and requires people with commitment and passion to work with older people. My Care My Way has been created following intensive work with professionals, patients and the voluntary sector to create a model of care rooted in evidence and designed to meet local needs.
Patients are at the heart of the model, and are working in partnership with professionals, supported by a dedicated integrated care team. All involved, including the person and their carer, will design care plans together to keep the person well for as long as possible and to achieve outcomes that they identify.
My Care My Way will deliver more consistent care for patients at their GP practice, within two multi-functional Integrated Care Hubs in the locality, or within their homes.
The Health and Social Care Assistant (HSCA) role offers a new and exciting opportunity to become part of the My Care My Way workforce; bringing together health and social care expertise to deliver real change for how care is delivered in West London.
The vision for this role is aspirational, in that it aims to bring together over time duties that are carried out by Health Care Assistants, Social Care Trusted Assessors, Navigators, and other disciplines. The post holder will also be equipped to provide low level mental health support. There is an emphasis on promoting independence and supporting patients to adopt self-care approaches, by linking them in with voluntary sector services based on their long term conditions, interests and preferences.
**Please note, this role may involve working some Out of Hours shifts, covering evenings and weekends**
Interviews will be taking place at: Age UK Kensington and Chelsea, 1 Thorpe Close, London, W10 5XL .
