Fairwinds is an adapted 20 bed unit which opened in 2004. It is situated within a densely populated residential area, a diverse ethnic community and is approximately two miles from Rotherham city centre. It has good transport system, easy access to local services and the M1 / A1 motorway network. Furthermore there is a wide variety of local attractions which benefits Fairwinds enormously.

The unit is a two storey building with 10 beds on each floor and are specifically equipped to cater for young adults with complex mental health care needs and may be challenging in their behaviour. This differing level of abilities both mentally and physically requires a carefully planned skills mix of highly qualified and experienced staff team to ensure the fulfilment of the resident’s social, mental, physical, psychological, emotional and psychical needs and wellbeing.

Our domestic team is vital in ensuring that all areas of the home are presented in such a way that it is inviting and welcoming to everyone who lives, works and visits the home.

Your tasks will include:

Assisting in the laundry where necessary
Reporting any defects, damage, theft, breakages or hazards
Reporting any compliments, comments and/or complaints
