Bring your enthusiasm, creativity and management skills to our fun, supportive team, when you join Signature Senior Lifestyle as Activities Supervisor at our BRAND NEW luxury care and nursing home in Beckenham which opens in October 2021.
You’ll be responsible for developing, coordinating and delivering some of the things that are most important to the residents within our home - activities, outings and events - and communicating about these both internally and externally, to residents and families, maximising local community involvement.
And you’ll lead a great team, inspire them and oversee their ongoing training and development, ensuring everything we do is within legislative and regulatory requirements.
Day-to-day, your main focus will be to identify and develop stimulating activities to meet each individual resident’s varying needs, whether that’s for our assisted living residents or those with Dementia.
Ideally, you’ll have worked in a similar role before, and will bring hands-on experience of supporting people with special physical needs and those living with Dementia. Some knowledge of event planning and hands-on artistic techniques such as ceramics, crafts and physical exercise would be a bonus.
You’ll have to be able to plan flexibility, allocating suitably-skilled team members to maximise each resident’s capabilities in accordance with our Dementia Strategy. But for all residents, you’ll be on top of local activity opportunities, birthdays and anniversaries, and local volunteers whose contact will be beneficial for our residents.
You’ll be leading on individual and group activities within the home’s person-centred care philosophy, focusing on elements of wellbeing including occupational, spiritual, physical and social, and you’ll organise key events throughout the year – such as the summer fete, seasonal celebrations and charity events. Then you’ll recruit, train and mentor new team members and volunteers to deliver these activities, evidencing them as part of each person’s individual and ongoing care plan. Meaningful activities enhance our residents quality of life and so it's important to understand their likes and dislikes.
Most of all, you’ll be joining a great team in amazing surroundings, providing the very best, inspiring welfare for our residents delivered by people who genuinely care.
We are kind and compassionate. Positive and resilient. Proactive and organised. Honest and accountable. Passionate and keen to develop. If this sounds like you, you’ll fit right in.
You’re a confident leader, well versed in how to enthuse older people to take part in activities, and ideally with Level 2 (QCF) Supporting Activities Provision in Social Care. Supervisory experience, good knowledge of Health & Safety, computer skills and a full, clean driving licence are a big advantage.
