Working in health and social care

Working in health and social care

To work in the municipality of Boden is to be close to the changing everyday life of the people of Boden. This means opportunities and challenges where the way forward can be the courage to dare to try. We have a strong dare to try culture where the support from competent colleagues and managers are close.

The Department of Social Welfare

The task of the Department of Social Welfare is to provide support and care to people who, due to age, disability or other reasons, need help and support.

Home care services

To remain at home, individuals may need support and assistance. This may include help with services such as shopping, cleaning and laundry. Other examples include support and assistance with personal hygiene, medication, escorting and supervision.

Social housing

Assisted sheltered housing is intended for older people, aged 65 or over, who mainly need support and assistance in housing and other easily accessible services. There is also a need for security and companionship and a need for care that is less than full-time care.

Short-term accommodation

Garni’s short-term accommodation is for individuals who need to live temporarily outside their home environment. The aim of short-term accommodation is to complement the home and provide safe care at all stages of life. A short-term place can be granted as alternating care to varying degrees or as a short-term place, e.g. after discharge from hospital where extensive home care services cannot be provided.

Retirement homes

When individuals are no longer able to live at home, they may receive a decision from the social services to move to a nursing home. The nursing home is staffed 24 hours a day and provides individual support and help with those activities that the individual cannot manage on their own.

Accommodation and support

Here, your patients may include both older and younger people with disabilities. Depending on where you work, your workplace may be in the user’s own home, a service home, a short-term/leisure centre or a group home. Examples of duties include supporting the user in their daily life, leisure time and care tasks.

Personal assistance

Personal assistance is a designed support provided in daily life by a limited number of people. As far as possible, the user should have an influence and co-determination over the services provided.

15 000 bonus

If you choose to work as a vacation substitute at the social administration in Boden this summer, you will receive a bonus of SEK 15,000. We also arrange for accommodation to be rented and transportation to the workplace if the bus does not stop directly outside. We want to make it easy for you to come to Boden and have a great summer under the midnight sun. You will also have access to a bicycle so that you can explore the municipality after working hours. What if you want to stay? Then we will help you solve that too.

Education is an advantage but not essential, so please send your application.

Working in the Social Administration

Operations are largely governed by various laws such as the Social Services Act and the Act on Support and Services for Certain Disabled Persons (LSS). This means that all interventions provided to individuals have a decision on the form of assistance to be provided. When an application for assistance is being considered, an individual assessment must always be made. If the individual is not satisfied with the decision, it is usually possible to appeal to the courts. Assistance can take many different forms, such as a place in a retirement home or group home, help from home care services, support and help for parents, relief for relatives, financial assistance (income support), and personal assistance.

The Social Services Department cooperates with a variety of actors such as the police, Region Norrbotten, various non-profit organisations and other organisations. Within the municipality, the department cooperates primarily with the education administration, and then it is about children and young people.
