Interesting, satisfying, and enjoyable
I held the position of Deputy Manager between 2010 and 2014. Had it not been for ill health I would probably still be there. Abbeyfield is a wonderful organisation.Some sites have nursing and care facilities, where I worked was allowing the elderley residents to remain and retain their independence. There was no 'care work' involved but it was very important to keep a discreet eye on each person living in the house ie: watching for perhaps signs of illness whereby the family and Doctor might be notified, being prepared to 'listen' to whatever tales and traumas, and basically providing a safe haven for - in my case - up to thirteen vulnerable people (albeit independant). I also provided and cooked the main meal for the day, lunch, and at teatime. The residents provided their own breakfast. There were times of wishing I could divide myself into numerous 'beings' but I got there. It is vital whoever works for Abbeyfield has an abundance of initiative, and common sense. You must be sensitive to each Resident's needs, listening to their worries, comforting when needed, and definitely keeping a cheerful disposition at all times. It is an extremely rewarding job and can be demanding. But if you enjoy it, then job satisfaction is apparent. It can be funny listening to the tales, it can be sad losing one of the Residents. But all the time, the aim of the game is to provide comfort and security (without being intrusive). It can be hard work and at the end of the day nice to put your feet up after a good day's work (hopefully), well done.
20 hours work per week. Meals are provided. Good pay and holiday allocations. Training available.
Work weekends, cover sickness and holidays. Be on call as and when.
