4 Lifesharing Live-In Male - Short Term Volunteer Care Assistant From 29 Aug 2017

Camphill Community Grangemockler is a rural based community consisting of four main houses a farm, garden, estate & weavery where adults with and without special needs live and or work together. The Community is situated in a rural part of South Tipperary with the nearest towns being, Carrick-on-Suir, Callan, Clonmel, Kilkenny City and Waterford City. Currently the community consists of 21 Residents, 27 Employees, 1 Long Term Volunteer and between 16 to 18 volunteers with a wide range of nationalities and cultural backgrounds. Working within this diverse and dynamic team allows personal development, friendships, new ideas and perspectives to flourish. Each house has 4-6 residents as well as 4 live in volunteers and is run by an employed House Coordinator and a Deputy House Coordinator, who support the volunteers in their work, and take responsibility for the residents care, wellbeing and personal records. Volunteers are asked to help in the personal care of adults with special needs, both physically and socially. Volunteers may have a variety of tasks such as cooking, cleaning, helping on the land or assisting in the weavery, as well as taking an active part in cultural activities and community-building. Volunteers usually stay for 1 year although applications for periods of 6 months or more will be considered. Volunteers who wish to extend their stay in the community are accepted on the basis of the communities needs although applications are always welcome. Further educational and training opportunities can be made available to those extending their stay. The first three months of the volunteer period is considered a trial period and the community reserves the right to ask any volunteer to leave after this if they are not suitable or unable to complete the work required. We also insist that all volunteers have a proficient level of English before arriving in the community, as English must be spoken at all times when in the company of residents and is crucial in communicating with and understanding other members of the community. In Camphill Community Grangemockler Volunteer Care Assistants work on a shift basis during the week and on a team basis on weekends, community events and Public Holidays. The shift basis involves being on either an Early Shift (07.30 – 13.30 & 14.30 – 17.30) or a Late Shift (13.00 – 21.30). STCW’s are also expected to stay on duty at night on Fire Safety shift (sleeping) between three or four times a week. At times split shifts are required Time outside of the shifts is often used by volunteers to rest, socialize, engage in cultural activities or focus on personal development and perhaps to share ideas about the work being done in the community. Some volunteers may be asked to become drivers for the community and vehicles may be available for personal use when not needed elsewhere. However public transport is also available from the local village. Each volunteer has one day off and this will either be Tuesdays, Thursdays or Fridays and may change depending on the house and community’s needs. On the weekends and for various community events, as well as Public Holidays throughout the year there are no scheduled shifts and volunteers are expected to work together as a team. This means sharing the workload and helping each other to complete the necessary tasks from morning until evening. Volunteers who bring a particular talent are invited to and often run, or help organise an evening or weekend activity such as Storytelling, Music, Arts & Crafts outside of their scheduled shift times. These activities are for the benefit of residents as well as the other volunteers whose active participation and assistance contribute to the social atmosphere in the community and enjoyment of all who live in the community.? A typical weekday: • This starts with assisting residents in their morning routines, preparing and eating breakfast. After breakfast everyone helps to, tidy up and prepare for the day ahead. • The community meets for Morning Gathering at 09.15 in the community hall. We open with a verse and we go over the plans for the day. We close the Gathering with a Seasonal song before wishing everyone a good day. • The remainder of the mornings are spent either in the house helping residents with various tasks such as cooking, cleaning, admin or in assisting our Day Services (Farm, Garden & Estate) by helping one or more of our residents achieve their own personal goals while engaging in meaningful work. From time to time it will also be necessary for volunteers to work alone in the house or Day Service to ensure all the daily tasks are completed to a high standard. • Everyone meets in their respective houses for lunch at 12.30 and helps to tidy up afterwards. Those starting the Late Shift usually provide lunch break cover from 13.30 – 14.30, while those on the Early Shift take a break for the hour. The exception to this is on Wednesdays when everyone from the house meets for a weekly meeting. • Starting at 14.30 (15.30 on Wednesdays) the afternoons consist of assisting Day Services (Weavery, Farm, Garden & Estate) again by helping one or more of our residents achieve their own personal goals while engaging in meaningful work. Or in helping one or more of the residents in meeting their personal care plans in the house or outside of the community. The afternoon Day Services finish at 17.30 and residents and volunteers return to their respective houses for Supper at 18.00. • Those volunteers on the Late Shift help residents prepare supper and assist residents with the various evening activities held throughout the week before assisting residents in their evening routines before they go to bed usually between 21.00 – 21.30. • One or two volunteers are expected to stay on duty in the house at night, although they can be asleep. This is to ensure that an evacuation can be undertaken, in the unlikely event that a fire or other emergency occurs. Volunteers can expect to be scheduled for this between 3 or 4 times a week but this will be determined by the needs of the house on a weekly basis. Weekends: We usually spend some time during the weekend to work together in the house and to spend time together socially. Weekends may involve a house or community outing to some place of interest, attending church for those who wish to, and other activities which there may not be time for during the week. Mealtimes: Meals are communal in all the houses and those on shift must attend to support the residents, however those off shift are also welcome and encouraged to attend meal times. You may of course use the kitchen to prepare personal meals outside of your scheduled shift as long as it doesn’t interfere with communal meals/meal preparation. We would really like you to feel at home in Grangemockler, so if you have any special dietary needs please let us know. We look forward to receiving you application and are happy to answer any questions you may have
