About the role

Aligned with the organisational 'positive wellbeing' model of care you will improve and maintain the mobility and independence of our residents. Some of the residents you will look after for years to come and the relationships you build with them and their families will be both meaningful and significant.

Working with a dedicated team you will make a real difference to the quality of life of our residents whilst practicing a holistic model of care.
