If so, we are looking for someone to shine in a rewarding role that helps people live independently for a long as possible in their own home. This is a great opportunity to work with a group of great people!
This is a varied and customer facing role, supporting residents in maintaining their well-being and independence.

Your duties will include visiting tenants, assessing their needs, producing support plans to help them achieve their goals and organising social events. You will also liaise with support services, facilitate social activities and ensure that access to services is exactly as it should be.
With strong listening and observational skills, as well as high standards of professionalism, you will be the first point of contact for visitors to the Scheme and will be responsible for inspecting and reporting any health and safety issues. The ideal candidate will have a passion and understanding of the needs of older people.
Excellent communication skills are required, as is some experience of undertaking a similar role.
