SummaryDo you have a few hours you can help by supporting our residents on a Saturday morning to ensure their safety.
We call it our SMILES register, whereby residents either phone reception or are called by a member of the team to confirm they are well. This is a very key role in the wellbeing of some of our most vulnerable residents. The role can be shared with alternate Saturday's if this would be helpful to applicants.
Full training and support would be provided by experienced staff.

About ExtraCare Charitable Trust
ExtraCare retirement villages are not just about providing new places to live. They’re about giving their residents a new lease of life. We believe that health, age or financial means should be no barrier to an enhanced quality of life
If care/support is required, it can be assessed and provided in the comfort and privacy of your own Village home. This means that couples can remain together if one partner becomes frail.
We foster an environment of supported independence where residents can take advantage of the social and leisure opportunities provided by the Trust.
To enable the Village to offer a wide range of facilities, we encourage volunteering as a path to continued well being through the inclusion of both residents and external volunteers. We offer a wide range of volunteering opportunities that enables inclusivity, which can range from reception duties, befriending, coffee shop, gym to name just a few.
