We work within the principles of person-centred support, enabling development and inclusion in their everyday lives within their home and wider community. Each service user has their own self-contained room within the service buildings and your work will be varied as you’ll be supporting with all sorts of activities including swimming, shopping, going for a coffee, going to the cinema, visiting zoos and clubs.
You’ll be supporting the service user with general household chores such as cooking, laundry, vacuuming and dusting and in some cases personal care (assisting with bathing, toileting and feeding).
