The service is based in Marston Green and is home to 14 residents. This is a full time post working with a Service User within the unit on a 1-1 basis. The care home operates a 3 week rolling rota to include early shifts (7am to 2.45pm), late shifts (2.15pm to 9.45pm) and long days (7.am to 9.45pm) with no night shifts or sleep in required.

Duties will include the promotion of independence through personal care routines and daily living skills.
