Situated in West End, Southampton, Abbeyfield’s impressive new residential care home, Speedwell Court, offers three services – residential, dementia care and end of life care within exclusive surroundings finished to the highest specification. Speedwell Court not only provides residential care, but also welcomes residents with dementia. We have designed the home to meet the individual needs of residents and improve their quality of life.
We are looking for both full-time and part-time general assistants to join our caring and experienced team, who is dedicated to promoting every resident’s health and wellbeing and enjoyment of life in these beautiful surroundings. We are a great team of compassionate and devoted people who are committed to provide a high quality personal service tailored to meet our residents’ individual needs and ensure that Speedwell Court feels like home to our residents, their family and friends.
A General Assistant’s role consists of cleaning the communal areas of the house, assisting the Housekeeper with meal service and supporting the residents whilst working as part of a small team. Duty sheets will be provided and GA’s are expected to complete the tasks allocated and sign them off. GA’s may also be asked to assist with event planning and other special occasions. They must have the ability to communicate well with others, show an understanding of others' needs and be willing to undertake training as required.
If you are caring, respectful and eager to learn as well as want to thrive and shine within their working environment with a high level of commitment to the job, we would love to hear from you. If you are successful, you will join a small team who all support each other and will share our values of being caring, honest, open and respectful whilst putting the needs of our residents first.
We are a charity organisation who provide high quality housing for over 55’s. We pride ourselves on offering a service which assists in alleviating loneliness and providing daily freshly cooked meals for our residents. We engage with our residents and encourage interaction through activities and outings.
