A little bit about the team at Better2gether;
I am very proud to say we that we have a team of people in the organization who are flexible and dedicated to the outcomes of the people who pay for our Services.
Our staff are responsive, informed, dedicated and committed to ensuring that the people we support are provided with the best support that we can deliver and that they remain as actively engaged in their own lives as possible from the staff on the ground to members of the leadership team.
It goes without saying that the people we provide support to are our main priority and we are always striving to do things better so people can work towards their goals.
We provide several different services at better2gether with the main focus of this role being to support people to live as independently as possible in their own home.
Staff are there to support people to engage in all of life tasks, and actively provide support in areas that people struggle to complete themselves. You wouldn’t be surprised to know that most of these tasks are things we do in our own life and around our own house including:
Maintaining living environments i.e. supporting with cleaning, cooking, garden maintenance, getting ready for our work commitments
Mentoring people to engage with shared living – we all know it can be hard living with others
Motivating people to choose activities, food, tasks to complete. Providing choice to people
Ensuring we are all safe in all aspects of our lives
