You will be supporting with their favourite pastimes and hobbies; They have a range of interests including swimming, cycling, going for days out to the beach, walking, shopping, going to the disco, using social media and going to bingo. Each resident has a car and therefore all staff must be able to drive so they can access local facilities.
You will take your turn working shifts on a rota, including days, evenings, weekends, and bank holidays. Service pattern at one service is 7am-12pm, 12pm-5pm, 5pm-10pm. Staff can choose whether they work 5 hour shifts, 10 hour shifts or 15 hour shifts. Other service is a mixture of days and nights.
