Working within our residents’ homes within our retirement villages, we tailor care packages to meet their individual needs. This can range from 15 minutes per week to more frequent daily help. Whatever the needs of the resident, our priority is to ensure they maintain control, choice and dignity at all times.
At St Monica Trust, our Care and Support Workers are highly valued by our residents. They help with the day to practical things like getting in and out of bed, dressing, bathing and hygiene. This is incredibly important for our residents, who may not be able to do as much as they used to. Just as importantly though, our Care and Support Workers provide company, they share stories, advise on what to eat, get to know residents’ friends and families – all of the things that contribute to a person’s well-being and quality of life.
This is a 32.5 hours part time role working on a 2 week rolling rota, including 1 split shift once in two weeks (usually 8am till 12pm and then 16.00 till 21.30 but can vary). 1 Late shift per week. Alternate weekends.
