Help the people in your community – become an NRS Healthcare responder

Are you interested in:

Flexible times and hours to suit you and your busy lifestyle
Providing assistance to vulnerable people in your community
Working as part of a friendly, dynamic team for a well-regarded healthcare company
Joining a new service at the start with the opportunity to help shape it for the future

If so, we would love to hear from you, if you:

  • Have a full, clean driving license
  • Live in or very close to the boundary of North Yorkshire
  • Would be able to lift a person with some mechanical support
  • Are caring and compassionate and have had some caring experience (not necessary)

We have full time, part time and relief/bank (flexible working) roles available

What does a community responder do?

As a community responder working for NRS Healthcare technology enabled care service, you will respond to non-emergency calls placed to our alarm receiving centre (ARC).

The ARC receives calls from clients throughout North Yorkshire, who have requested assistance through their technology enabled care device.

The kind of calls you may respond to include:

  • Non injury fall pick-ups – this is where the person may have fallen and is not injured, so does not require an ambulance, but is also unable to get themselves up. You will receive training and be issued with specialist equipment to assist you with these calls.
  • Reassurance/check up calls – this may be where the person has fallen and been able to get up themselves but still need a bit of reassurance or it may be a call just to provide a bit of peace of mind to someone feeling unwell or anxious.

The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year and you’ll work on a rota basis with the rest of your supportive team members.
