Role and responsibilities

A small specialist residential care home, without nursing, providing 24-hour support to people who are deaf, with additional complex needs.

Our support workers enable people to be as independent as possible, supporting areas such as making healthy lifestyle choices, managing money, cooking, shopping, cleaning, using public transport and going to college or work. The home is active and the role varied so you can expect to support on days out, meals out, movie nights and much more!

Newbridge Hill opened in 1990 and in the last 27 years has built a solid reputation of providing high quality independence training and care, for the people who choose to live here. At our last CQC Inspection we achieved good ratings. We have a beautiful house, fantastic people who live here, a lovely team and two gorgeous cats!

The people we support are lively, friendly group of people who live together in a residential home based in Bath. They are all very different, as you can see from their range of interests, which include everything from films, cooking, social media, eating out, gardening, gaming, socialising, animals, holidays and deaf club. Many things are important to them, including improving their independence skills such as mobility, cooking, housekeeping, respecting their privacy and their family/friends.

The support they need to help them get the most out of their day is as varied as they are. But whether you’re helping them communicate with others more fully, learn a new bus route, or plan one of their group holidays you’ll help them get the most out of life. Fun, friendly and imaginative, you’ll help them all feel safe, secure and fulfilled.

Other duties relate to the rehabilitation programmes we provide and risk management is the key to planning the programmes that protect and empower the people who live here. Finally, you have to care. Not only about the people who live here, but everything you do at work. We are passionate about what we do and how we work together is important to us.

To join us as a Support Worker, you don’t have to have experience working with people who are deaf although this would be very useful. You will need to have relevant care experience and be eager to learn – developing skills in British Sign Language and working towards a QCF Level 3 Diploma in Social Care.

Finally, we are aware that not everyone has all of the skills we require, but if you have some and are willing to learn with us, you may be the person we are looking for!
