What you’ll be doing

Being a Lifestyle Coordinator is about creating, organising and communicating a varied programme of activities for residents.

It’s also about empowering each resident individually, assisting them with their ability to participate and enabling them to achieve their goals.

You’ll do this by spending quality time with residents and their families in order to gain a full understanding of their interests and aspirations.

Meaningful activity is the result and the responsibility of all colleagues input, so you’ll work closely with the team to involve everyone in the home and make this successful.

Put simply, it’s about making a difference. A real difference.

What you’ll need

Some relevant experience is essential, as is the ability to compile social care plans for residents and maintain confidentiality.

We’ll also be looking for excellent interpersonal skills and a flair for prioritising a busy workload. Someone who’s able to retain information and carry out instructions accurately, keeping accurate written records is important too.

Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more enjoyable and want to work in an environment where the work can be challenging, but also fun, fullfilling and rewarding.

  • Where you'll work
  • We offer high quality care and an attractive location in a lovely village.

    Stanecroft care home is set in the attractive village of North Holmwood near Dorking in Surrey. We offer residential and respite care to older people who are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

    Our friendly, highly skilled team is very experienced in caring for older people with a range of needs. We get to know each resident extremely well, so that we can create personalised care plans that take into account their individual experiences, interests and aspirations.

    Our aim is for each person to lead a happy and fulfilling life that’s as active and independent as possible. As well as planning regular activities for residents, we encourage and support them to take part in the day-to-day life of the home in any way they wish, which might mean laying tables for dinner, baking cakes for everyone to enjoy or watering plants.

    Stanecroft has a warm, friendly atmosphere and relatives’ families and friends are always welcome. The home is tastefully decorated, with light and airy rooms and living areas, and our gardens are fully accessible and secure, so that residents who are living with dementia can explore them independently.
