Pros: was local, worked with great team
Working in a residential home that is made up of several flats, I support a number of
adults with learning disabilities and or mental health disorders with everyday tasks.
A major part of my role is to encourage the service users to be more independent and
teach the service users skills for everyday life such as hygiene, cooking, relating to people,
money – more... management etc. I also assist with medication rounds and look after each
persons general wellbeing.
I learnt more about mental health conditions and learnt and enjoyed communicating and supporting people with different abilities. – less
