With community-based residential care settings, as well as a network of supported living services, we support adults over the age of 18 with autism, dementia, learning disabilities, mental health conditions, Prader-Willi Syndrome (PWS) and behaviours that challenge.

Job Advert Role Description

We are looking for Support Workers to work Days or Nights. 

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of support workers at Yew Tree Lodge in Reading , part of Priory Adult Care.

Yew Tree Lodge is a residential home located in Reading, Berkshire. We offer 24-hour support and rehabilitation to adults, with severe and enduring mental health needs. We can provide respite services for the local area, assist people to step down to us from hospital, and provide the specialist care needed to avoid further hospital admissions.

As a support worker you will be supporting our residents with their day to day lives, encouraging them to live as independently as possible. You may get involved in exciting activities outside of the home too – our residents participate in day trips, charity events and much more!

Our ideal support worker will:

  • Be reliable, friendly and caring to help our residents achieve their everyday goals
  • Be able to cook and clean  
  • Be able to support in house activities and hobbies
  • Be attentive and inspire our residents to achieve more!
  • Be resilient and help manage some behaviours that challenge

Whilst drivers are able to take residents out and about, you don’t need to be a driver to work here – we employ many non-drivers too!

What we’ll give you:

  • A rewarding job, full of variety and opportunities for career development
  • Brilliant, ongoing training to help you achieve more
  • Support of an experienced and friendly team of colleagues
  • Access to our Career Pathways, which will help shape your career with us – you can work towards goals and milestones that will take your career in whichever direction you wish
