About Hohepa

Working at Hohepa, is different from the average, you become part of our community of people, staff, volunteers, and contractors who all have a common goal - helping people to reach their full potential and lead enriched and meaningful lives in a holistic, supportive environment. 

We are a community leader providing services and support for people living with an intellectual disability to live their best lives and find a valued place in our society. Inspired by Dr Rudolf Steiner’s principles of anthroposophy, we seek to understand each person and situation as unique, not a one size fits all philosophy. 

About the Role

We have an opportunity to join one of our support worker teams. You would be supporting six people in our Bev Morrisey service. It is a slower paced, relaxed service. The people living there enjoy getting out into the community for coffees and travelling out of the city for day trips on the weekend. 

As a Support Coordinator at Hohepa you will have a kind nature and can-do attitude, remembering it’s the little things that matter. You will be supporting people with disabilities in a range of settings including in their home, out in the community and at our day services. The people we support love getting out into the community, whether its shopping, beach walks, coffee and cake outings, visiting friends, supporting the Crusaders, going to markets and fairs, or heading to the pub for a pint, to name just a few. 

The people we support have varying levels of need, and daily tasks vary from service to service but may include cooking, cleaning, medication administration, stores purchasing, personal cares, as well as facilitating community participation, recreational activities, and supporting people to achieve their goals. You may also provide person-centred support in homes where routine is critical; following details plans to meet the needs of the people.
