Are you looking to make positive difference through your work? Are you a self-motivated individual who has excellent communication skills and an interest in residential and dementia care? If so, you could be who we are looking for.
West Berkshire Council is looking to recruit a committed Care Practitioner to join our friendly, hard working team at Notrees Care Home in Kintbury. Notrees is an 18 bed residential care home that provides residential care for older people and people living with dementia. We offer a friendly, safe and secure environment in which our residents can live their lives with dignity, respect and inclusion.

We believe our residents have choices about their care, and we promote independence as much as possible. We aim to offer physical, social and emotional support to our residents in order to meet their individual needs and preferences.
This role will involve supporting a diverse group of residents. You will be responsible for assisting residents with their day to day care, responding to their changing needs, supporting their cultural preferences and promoting their emotional and social wellbeing. You will focus on positive outcomes for the residents that respect their freedom of choice and promote their independence and you will undertake all necessary training to support you in this role.
