A key part of the SAIL navigation role is making sure that people are safe and independent at home, know what social groups are available and are able to access them. The SAIL Care Navigator acts as the link between the older person and other services, involving family members, volunteers and partners where relevant to support the implementation of the plan.
SAIL Care Navigators currently take referrals from the SAIL checklist, visit people at home and use person centred thinking tools to support older people to create and implement support plans to address isolation and malnutrition and any other goals the person wants to achieve.
AUKLS enjoys an open and participative working environment. We work to our core values of being supportive, professional and person centred. These are reflected in the way we work with older people, with each other and with our partners. Teamwork, collective responsibility and delegated authority are central to this process. A key element of all roles is to develop and maintain the organisation’s working ethos and culture.
AUKLS strives to provide a supportive working environment for all staff and volunteers in order that they can develop personally and professionally and acquire new skills. The contribution made by staff and volunteers in achieving the organisation’s goals is recognised by all.
