Whatever the needs of the resident, our priority is to ensure they maintain control, choice and dignity at all times. Our Support Workers are highly valued by our residents.
We value our Support Workers as highly as our residents do. Joining our dedicated team in our care home, you'll help with the day-to-day practical things like dressing, bathing and hygiene, food and mobility, but what makes you so special is the extra effort you go to. You understand everything that contributes to a person's well-being and quality of life, which is why you provide such good company for our residents. It's why you get to know residents' friends and families. It's why you care.

What we're looking for:
You can deliver an exceptional level of care and support to older people with dementia and disabilities, and whilst it's preferable that you have experience doing this, it's not essential. What is necessary is that you're an excellent communicator. You're good at speaking and listening and can build strong relationships with our residents and their families. You can resolve problems, work in a safe and compliant manner, keep records up-to-date and follow basic instructions to support our residents' well-being and comfort. Of course, you can attend to their personal care and physical needs, but you can also look further than that. Always patient and flexible, you understand and respect the fact that individuals have individual needs.

You can find more details about the role and the person we are looking for, through the role profile, which is available on our website.

If this sounds like the role for you, we look forward to hearing from you!
