Supported Living Service Manager - Milton Keynes
We have 4 supported living services in the Milton Keynes Area; these are located in the residential areas of Bletchley, Middleton, Crown Hill and Giffard Park. Autism Care is part of the Lifeways Group.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual who wants to make a difference to the lives of the people we support
Our Service Managers are responsible for leading a team of support workers and Team Leaders to deliver person centered support to several service users within our supported living services in and around the Milton Keynes area.
Some of the people we support have complex needs; this means that some people have difficulty in communicating their needs and may require the use of signs/symbols or pictures to communicate with their support.
We provide support to a diverse range of needs, from low level support including supervision/prompting with medication, domestic tasks, shopping right through to full support with all aspects of day to day living which may include supporting someone with their personal care needs (bathing/toileting/dressing), cooking and preparing of meals, accessing their local community.
The people we support have varied challenges from very limited support through to complex care, and you will work collaboratively with the area manager to drive quality within the services to maximize opportunities for the people we support to have inclusive and great lives.
