What’s your idea of working in care? We’d love to share a glimpse of life at Salutem with you!
Firstly, let’s talk about the people we support. Mark is our Karaoke king, Matty can walk for miles any day of the week, and Leslie loves going to the beach.
Could you be the friend they need to help them live their best lives?
We’re Salutem and we are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children and adults in England and Wales across our residential homes, schools and day centres.
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.
The property is purpose built and all on one level with disabled access and off road parking. All bedrooms, shower rooms and communal rooms have a full room coverage tracking hoist system.
The service is located in the Leckwith area of Cardiff and is the perfect location for any individual to develop personally and experience new things. It is just a stone’s throw from the both the City Centre and Cardiff Bay. The individuals we support can choose from shopping in some of the biggest retails stores/parks in the country to expanding skills and knowledge in the Museums, Galleries and Science Centre, or maybe catching a match at the World Famous Millennium Stadium, before relaxing in one of the many bars and restaurants in the bay area.
We can provide support for as much or as little time as you wish; whether it’s for a few hours, a day, an evening, or in a supported living setting for 24 hours a day.
We have recently started supporting a young man to move into his own property in Honiton. He loves going on bus trips, especially to get ice cream and loves being outdoors.
Support Workers at Salutem support people like Mark, Matty and Leslie to overcome any personal challenges each day so they can achieve outstanding outcomes. Individuals in our Salutem family may have disabilities or require complex care, but that doesn’t stop them from having fun, laughing hard and loving life.
Each day will be different, and the main focus of your role is to provide daily support to adults in our residential services. It’s definitely not a normal 9-5, you can work days, nights, and flexible shifts too. Talking of ‘dream’ jobs, some of our shifts are sleep-ins!
In regards to benefits, at Salutem, any day can be a payday. That’s right, you can withdraw up to 30% of your wages via Wagestream, so if you need some cash, we’ve got you covered.
As a keyworker in the Care sector, you’ll hold a valued role in society. You’ll qualify for discounts with a Blue Light card and we’re signed up to Perkbox which offers over 200 exclusive perks and discounts. If you qualify for a pension scheme and choose to opt in, we’ll support you to pay into this.
Inductions and training are a priority, and we’re committed to supporting you to find your feet when you join us. We’ll pay for any training you need to do your job. We also have an internal staff communications app, Blink, where everyone has a voice and can lean on each other for daily support, and celebrate success too.
For a more confidential chat you can access the Employee Support Helpline, to support you with any issues including financial advice, health and well-being and more.
We have a massive duty of care towards those we support who are often the most vulnerable in society, which is why our staff are encouraged to keep up to date with vaccines and focus on self-care too.
