It’s all about offering support for life within a vibrant community, where care can be provided but an individual’s needs and lifestyle can continue to be enjoyed. A place our customers can call ‘home’ and relationships between our customers and support workers blossom. Our staff, customers and families work together to create purpose and meaning to the day where there is a feeling of security and experience, a sense of Belonging.
You will be responsible for providing nutritious and appetising meals to meet customers’ personal needs and choices; working closely with the Bistro and Catering Manager to follow menu cycle and recipes, with customer involvement where possible, responding to food choices and special diets according to individuals’ needs.
Support our customers to maintain a high standard of wellbeing by ensuring their dietary requirements are met, recording their eating and drinking, completing relevant charts where appropriate.
You will be planning, ordering and maintaining minimum food stock levels in order to prepare and cook three appetising and nutritious meals per day in the household, organising meals at a time to suit the residents of the household; Ensuring customers have the opportunity to make real choices about their food and drink using photos, recipes and smells etc.
The support you provide to individuals, including those living with dementia, ensures that Belong's high standards of care and values are upheld in everything we do. Encouraging independence to customers with everyday living skills, whilst retaining a duty of care for their wellbeing.
There will be no such thing as a typical day for the Host who is willing to go that ‘extra mile’. As well as being a truly caring person, you will need to be friendly and enthusiastic, prepared to experiment and find different ways of doing things and always act as a professional.
There are a number of opportunities for Hosts at various levels, so if you have a passion and focused on ensuring that you always place the customer at the heart of everything you do, we’d like to hear from you.
Belong has excellent learning and development opportunities in place to help you do so, plus a range of attractive benefits.
