Who are WCS Care?

WCS Care is England's leading care home provider as rated by the Care Quality Commission, with 6 homes rated as outstanding. We're recognised for being an innovative and creative care provider and believe every day can be well lived for our residents - even if that's their last day. We're looking for people who can live our values and help residents to keep enjoying the things they've always done, while offering them new opportunities.

Job purpose
Our Lifestyle Coaches deliver inspiring, innovative and customised exercise classes and activities to our residents, providing a wide range of opportunities to stimulate their physical and mental wellbeing. You'll motivate and guide care staff in the home activity programme, under the direction of the Home Manager, so that activity opportunities are taken by everyone where possible. You'll promote the philosophy of privacy, dignity, independence, choice, rights and fulfillment for residents, and the principles of individuality throughout the activity and exercise programme, ensuring everyone can benefit from the programme in their own way.

Main duties
The main duties for this role include the creation of a programme of activities for the home using the range of fantastic supporting materials and guides provided. This will include a minimum of three activity sessions per day, seven days a week, including 'drop-in' in-house activities such as Skype sessions, "What the papers say", group activities such as games and parties, community trips and externally-led sessions. You'll liaise with Head Office to ensure the visual activity programme is produced in good time and displayed in appropriate places within the home and ensure activity sessions are led by a named person and take place as planned when you're not leading them yourself.

You'll gather feedback on sessions through a range of media such as photographs, film clips and questionnaires, and collate short reports to share with fellow Lifestyle Coaches and management to contribute to our learning so we can develop our exercise programme going forwards. You'll ensure participation in group and one-to-one activities is recorded in people's life diaries to be shared with relatives and friends.

Lifestyle Coach positions are currently available in:
