Team Leader - Claremont House
£20,092 - £21,748
At Claremont House, we specialise in both short-term and long-term care for people with a dementia diagnosis, aiming to help our residents stay independent, safe and secure in our protected environment. All our staff are specially trained to work with residents whose diagnosis of dementia means that they need extra support and understanding. We offer security and safety in a home-from-home environment.
Working closely with families during what can often be a worrying time, you will work on a 6-week rota including weekends and Public Holidays. The earliest start will be 7:00am and the latest finish 9:45pm. Coordinating with advocacy services and community mental health teams you will be trained to serve as an advocate for the council’s Dignity in Care campaign.
Reporting to a Deputy Manager, you will be part of a team consisting of other Team Leaders, Support Workers, and in some locations housekeeping staff. You will also be part of a larger multi-disciplinary team working in partnership with health staff assessors and the independent sector.
You will have a role in establishing and maintaining relationships with service users, relatives and other professionals. The primary focus of your role is to ensure the provision of quality support to service users which exceed Care Quality Commission expectations and standards. This will, of course, include direct support provision and you will also support the Support Workers and housekeeping staff in providing high quality support, checking on service users regularly as well as preparing light snacks for service users. Your role here is to act as a role model whilst providing support and direction where necessary to make sure duties are carried out effectively, efficiently and in line with service objectives, policies, procedures and standards.
Requirements for this job:
- Experience of working in a relevant care setting.
- Awareness of current care practices and standards.
- Commitment to delivery of quality care provision.
- Ability to challenge practice that does not meet requirements/standards.
- Ability to demonstrate literacy skills to write reports and maintain service user records.
