We are the largest care provider in Cornwall. We are a not-for-profit organisation and a registered charity, giving practical assistance for all types of care.

"We believe in going above and beyond offering high-quality care, going that extra mile to improve lives every day."

As an Activities Coordinator for Cornwall Care, you’ll be working in our Trewartha home within a team of likeminded individuals who all genuinely care about those people whose homes you are working in.

Trewartha is a home with feel-good factor, the kind of place where your own family would reside – and for some of our staff they actually do! Bonds here are strong, between our team and those with the nursing and dementia needs we care for.

The layout is a dream, all on one level with a large yet cosy main lounge. The dining room overlooks the sunny garden, with its magnificent magnolia tree. Soft coloured décor, singing and laughter, resident cats and spa mornings – it all adds up to a wonderful place to be.

What you’ll do:
• Listen to our residents, meet with family members talk with the home care staff to gain knowledge about a resident’s individual life story, experiences and interests.
• Plan and organise cost effective and stimulating activities for residents to include for example music, art, crafts and exercise programs.
• Plan and organise outings for residents
• Develop strong links with the local community to fund raise for the home activities and events.
• Assist resident’s at meal times and with general care needs as required.

What you’ll need:
• Excellent interpersonal and communication skills.
• Great planning and organisational skills.
• IT literate
• Sensitivity and awareness of dementia, dependency, depression and people at risk of falls.
• Good standard of literacy and numeracy (GCSE B or equivalent)
• Full Clean Driving Licence.

What you’ll receive:
You’ll have access to free 24 hour counselling and legal advice services, shopping discounts with high street retailers and local supplier and discounted gym memberships.

If you’re looking for a career with Cornwall Care, there are very real opportunities to progress with us. Being a large organisation means a huge variety of other roles, right across the county.
