The Lewis Martin Court family is recruiting!
Hello Cardiff! We’re Lewis Martin Court and if you don’t know about us – you really should!
We support around 15 young adults with disabilities helping them to live a life they love. We don’t just care for the individuals we support, we care about them.
We love to get out and about, from going to football, day trips, special events, nights out, bowling – you’ve probably seen us having a laugh in some corner of this city!
At Salutem Care and Education, we recognise the value and wisdom that come from all stages of life. Join our team to be a part of a community that truly appreciates the richness of age diversity.
We are looking for a qualified nurse to join our residential team in Cardiff. Lewis Martin Court is a residential care home in Cardiff made up of three self-contained five-bedroom bungalows. It has a nursing provision for disabled young adults with complex care needs, as well as a respite provision for short breaks. The home provides a high level of support to enable the individuals we support to meet their personal goals and future aspirations.
As part of our nursing team you’ll be putting together health care plans, Protocols, risk assessments and liaising with the multi-disciplinary team from the health authority and other outside agencies who support that individual. You’ll be administering medications, carrying out other nursing procedures and providing psychological support.
Individuals we support become part of a Salutem family, where they can be themselves, thrive, and love the life they live. We are immensely proud of the part we play in creating meaningful days and fulfilled lives for everyone at Salutem, and that includes those who work for us. The opportunities and prospects really are limitless, and that’s why you should consider becoming part of our family.
You are a superhero to all the people we support, making a difference in their lives every day. You overcome daily challenges to achieve a safe, stimulating and supportive environment in care helping them to achieve their greatest goals and aspirations.
We want to be the best, and this role is key in achieving this!
