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.

Job Advert Location Description

Aire House is an 8 bedded residential service in the heart of Harrogate. Aire House provides assessment and support for adults living with a primary learning disability diagnosis but may present complex conditions. Some of the people we support also have communication difficulties as well as a range of other disabilities such as autism or epilepsy.

Our service offers 24/7 specialist residential care which is designed to provide just the right level of support; we encourage individuals to develop the skills that they need to live as independently as possible. We offer 1:1 staffing where required and have installed a nurse-call system in each room.

There are many educational and activity programmes to get involved in at Aire House. Activities include attending the local college and adult training centres.

Within the house we continually promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. We find that the people who live at Aire House are very proud of their home as they are directly involved in creating it. Individuals get involved in daily duties such as cooking, doing laundry and cleaning, depending upon their ability.

Many enjoy the social occasions arranged by Aire House, such as: eating out, going shopping, going to music concerts, football or rugby matches, trips to theme parks, visits to the local Turkish spa baths and much, much more.

Approximately a two minute walk away there are local shops including a pharmacy, a post office, a newsagent and a small supermarket, as well as a large local park. The main town of Harrogate is approximately one mile away. Harrogate has a main college just outside of town and there are smaller learning centres in and around the local area.
