Responsibilities
- Creating personal programmes of support and progression designed to meet the individual's needs
- Liaising with outside organisations to arrange entertainment, events and to secure funding
- Creating a warm and homely environment which acknowledges the emotional needs of our residents, and strives to provide friendship and companionship for them as well as care

Requirements
- Excellent organisational skills
- A creative, enthusiastic and positive personality
