We are looking for people to join our activities team to help keep our residents happy and healthy. Activities are a huge part of life for our residents, improving their mental and physical health, so we want to ensure the activities we offer are person-centred, interesting and fun.
This is a fun and varied position and we need warm-hearted, committed individuals to help us deliver the type of caring and stimulating environment you’d want your own relatives to have. The role is 35 hours per week, working 9am to 4.30pm.
You need to be creative and confident, with positive energy and a natural ability to get along with people, along with great organisational and IT skills. Your role will include devising and implementing meaningful occupational therapies, helping our residents retain a sense of purpose and self-worth, bringing joy to their lives in an environment of safety, trust and respect.
Activities may include crafting, board games, puzzles, gardening, reminiscence therapy. We organise trips out, these could be just around the local park, or swimming or to local towns. You will need to liaise with our residents to take account of their ideas and requests, and contact providers for music sessions, pet therapy, etc.
Excellent communication skills are required and the ability to work well as part of a dedicated team. Always giving support to our residents and maintaining their dignity and privacy, the whole team strive to provide a happy, stimulating and stable environment.
