Supporting people to live independently
There are a range of roles with different job titles which are all about supporting people to live independently, often following illness, and don’t involve personal care.

Supporting a wider care team
- The ability to treat people with dignity
- Good listening and observational skills
- The ability to provide someone with opportunities to learn
- Being responsive and supportive

You could move into a senior support worker role and take on additional responsibilities which may include supporting and mentoring other members of staff as well as being responsible for the day to day supervision of the service.
