Prior to their brain injury one of our service users travelled and lived around the world as part of his job. When our cooking club, Theme Night Thursday’s was introduced, they showed a clear interest and passion for other cultures. This resident had previously been reserved and keen to spend time in their bedroom. The resident became a regular and assisted in chopping the vegetables for our theme night, with the aim that this would help improve his fine motor skills as part of his neuro-rehabilitation.

At the Vines, we provide 24 /7 support to all individuals by offering a flexible and responsive approach to our residents’ care. We celebrate and support what the individuals are able to do, when they are able to do so, whilst preparing for ways they can continue to excel as their condition progresses. Staff’s talent is developed and training provided to ensure that they can support those we care for.

What we’d like from you:

  • Excellent communication skills
  • Effective organisational capability
