Job Advert - Division Information

Priory Adult Care is the UK’s leading independent provider of specialist adult care services. Our aim is to provide the right support in the right home for all the individuals we accommodate.

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. We also offer a range of residential and nursing care settings for older people with varying levels of need.

Our service is operated by a friendly and dedicated staff team who are passionate about helping people to acquire and develop skills that will allow them to live moreindependently in the future. We support each individual in the creation of a person-centred plan which provides every person with

the opportunity to express how much support they would like and at a level they need to reach their goals and aspirations. For some people this means attending college courses to improve literacy and

numeracy, and for others it means work placements.
