It’s so motivating knowing that I am making a difference to the lives of vulnerable residents and enabling them to regain independence – Reablement Worker
Our reablement team are highly experienced, dynamic and progressive.
We are a successful team who have been able to ensure that 75% of our service users have remained independent in their own home without any formal support.
We are also part of a team who were highly commended by the Health Service Journal in June 2018, for improving value in the care of frail older patients.
Our care services are provided in settings such as our care homes (Fessey House & Whitbourne House) or individual homes, where carers have the opportunity to work with older people, those with different types of disabilities, or those who use mental health services.
We are continually looking for motivated, passionate individuals that have the commitment to make a difference and provide the highest level of support and care for our residents.
All of our teams have a common focus- we are “Proud to Care”.
