Maintenance Person, Winnersh, Berkshire
Our dementia care home in winnersh is a brand new concept in dementia support. Based near Wokingham, in Berkshire, the home has been specially designed to offer the best possible care to people living with dementia.
The home has been developed to allow freedom of movement throughout as it flows from one area into another without residents reaching any dead ends. At abbeyfield winnersh we combine cutting edge technology with expert design to offer a safe, stimulating and comfortable dementia friendly environment.
The home has 62 en-suite bedrooms together with separate spa-bathrooms, a beauty salon, lounges, a cinema, and a shop. This is surrounded by beautiful gardens which can be enjoyed by you, your family and friends.
The gardens have been created to encourage outside living, with lots of outdoor areas for residents to sit in and look at. We understand the importance of getting a varied and healthy diet, so we will ensure all residents receive nutritious meals.
The main tasks include ensuring that the day to day repairs and maintenance of the building and its environment are maintained. This will include painting and decoration to residents’ rooms, keeping the grounds and garden tidy as well as completing regular checks and minor maintenance to all specified equipment on a regular basis. You will demonstrate compliance with abbeyfield policies and procedures and follow appropriate procedures in the event of accidents or emergencies.
Ability to read and write to a good standard, as well as good communication and interaction skills are essential. Previous maintenance or DIY experience is required as well as being able to ensure that all aspects of the role are consistently carried out to a high standard. Candidate must also be a self-starter and able to work on own initiative and demonstrate empathy and understanding of the needs of the elderly.
