Details

At Canford Healthcare we specialise in providing quality residential care for the elderly across our group of care homes. A fantastic and exciting opportunity has arisen for a Head of Activities to become part of our team at Inglewood Nursing Home.

Description

Activities are vital to the health and wellbeing of older adults and, led by the head of activities, the team works hard to organise a varied programme of meaningful activities inside the home as well as trips out to places of interest. The role can involve arranging for outside singers, musicians, art and craft specialists and friendly animals or to come safely into the home.

The head of activities puts together requirements and proposals for the annual budgetary process, updates the home management team on planned activities and requirements for equipment, updates care plans and arranges regular meetings with residents and their families to plan events and gain feedback. The role also involves supervising activities staff and conducting regular supervisions and annual appraisals.

The role may involve flexibility around work requirements and for the right person it will be exciting, varied and rewarding. A successful head of activities must have previous experience of working with elderly people, be able to encourage and motivate others and build positive relationships with residents. They must also be creative and have strong leadership skills and the ability to lead by example.
