About the role
Prevention & Early Intervention is about helping people to remain independent living in their communities, providing information and support to enable them to do things for themselves rather than having things done for them. Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) is a joint health and social care funded team which forms a part of Prevention and Early Intervention Services in Cambridgeshire. Combined our services prevent, reduce, and delay the need for formal care services, support informal carers and help communities to build resilience.
What will you be doing?
TECS provide guidance, training, and advice, alongside the loan of various items of assistive technology which might be useful to support independence and maintain safety for people. TECS is a fast-paced environment and involves working closely with a range of colleagues across the health and social care economy. TECS plays an important part in managing demand on services and improving the well-being of those we work with.
TECS is a multi-disciplinary team working together to provide timely and focused support to improve quality of life, supporting people, carers, and families to take control of and make well-informed choices about their or their family members’ care and support.
You will be required to travel across the county and will need access to a vehicle.
