Abbey Gardens is a nursing care home which provides 24 hour care and support to older people with complex mental health needs and associated sensory and physical disabilities. These disabilities may be complex and include enduring health conditions and behavioural support.
As a superhero "Activity Support Worker" you will engage the people we support in both therapy and social based activities. Crucially, allowing them to develop skills and achieve their goals by maximising their opportunities in everyday life. This could be a range of activities doing arts and crafts, drawing, painting, exercise, going out in the community, day trips, gardening, baking, cooking - any activities at all that the people we support will enjoy! You must be able to work on your initiative and work autonomously in order to plan activities for the people we support throughout your working week.
You may need to support individuals with personal care and administering medication in certain circumstances, so you must be comfortable with this element of the role.
