Support Worker Mental Health

Posted 1 January by Newcross Healthcare Ended

We are seeking experienced Mental Health Support Workers to work in supported living or acute care environments with clients who present with mental health needs in Swansea, Llanelli, Neath, Ammanford and surrounding areas, through our friendly local Swansea branch.

It is essential that you are dedicated to promoting the well-being and quality of life of each individual you care for. This means recognising the capabilities of each person, championing their needs and seeing them as more than a care plan.

The Support Role

We are especially interested to hear from carers with PMVA training (prevention management of violence and aggression).

Our person-centred service is designed to enrich the quality of life of service users, helping them to socialise with family, friends and visitors. That is why we are recruiting only the most compassionate and empathetic individuals.

If you take pride in giving the best possible care that enhances the wellbeing and quality of life of every individual you care for, we can offer you flexible shifts that can be tailored to fit around your family or other job commitments.
