As we are easing out of social restrictions you will be facilitating new and old experiences and activities as part of their own community, supporting people to keep in touch with both friends and family and maintain those important relationships. You will be facilitating therapeutic physical exercises and engage in stimulating activities and will also work closely in partnership with various health professionals to ensure that the people we support lead a happy and healthy life.
