About the Role:

This might include activities such as baking, gardening or arts and crafts. You may also support activities out in the local community, including swimming or bowling.

You'll also be responsible for carrying out the person-centred support plans (including personal care) and following risk assessments, administering medication and completing daily reports to ensure those we care for are safeguarded while living their best life.

Shifts are Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 3:00pm
