Stibbs House is a registered care and nursing home offering stimulating and supported breaks for people with learning disabilities. Service users come into Stibbs House for a planned regular stay or on an emergency basis and return to their family home after their break.
We have 10 beds and currently cater for clients aged between 18 and 70 years old. The accommodation is set up to be ideal for those with physical disabilities, being spacious and comfortable, with both a sensory room and garden also part of its make-up. We have a comprehensive selection of activity equipment to provide an interesting and stimulating environment and hope to have a snoezelan room installed in the near future.
We currently support approx. 60 people to access our services and regular short breaks. We work as a team and share the roles and responsibilities – which helps to keep the job interesting and develop our skills and experience in all aspects of care provision.
In return, we will offer you some excellent benefits including:
- Up to 26 days’ holiday and 8 days’ bank holiday entitlement
- Family friendly/work-life balance policies
- Company pension scheme & health cash plan (BHSF)
- Free parking at most Trust services
- Comprehensive induction and learning and development opportunities
- Access to all levels of training appropriate to your role and career progression with the Trust
As Registered Nurse Team Leader, your responsibilities will include:
- Ensuring that the people supported receive professional, individualised support, with a commitment to ensuring support delivered is forward-thinking, either through your own efforts or those of your team.
- Ensuring that each service user has an up to date and agreed care plan which details interventions necessary; evaluating and reviewing care plans in line with policy.
- Taking responsibility for the day to day management of the home when on duty, in line with Trust policies and procedures and in accordance with national best practice standards and relevant codes of conduct.
This is an interesting and varied role, as we get to meet lots of new people with very varied support needs, and frequently have new people referred to our service.
