About the Home

Ravensdale is a twenty bedded specialist psychiatric home working with adult service users who present with complex mental health needs. The home also offers specialist care for individuals with Huntington's disease and other neurological conditions. We have a focus on enablement and recovery and have expanded to support three people on an intensive recovery journey.  The home is split in to 2 x 10 bedded units and one 3 bedded community house.

Our domestic team is vital in ensuring that all areas of the home are presented in such a way that it is inviting and welcoming to everyone who lives, works and visits the home.

Your tasks will include:

  • Cleaning all areas of the home, including service user rooms, public and common areas such as lounges, offices, dining rooms, kitchen, bathrooms, etc
  • Assisting in the laundry where necessary
  • Reporting any defects, damage, theft, breakages or hazards
  • Reporting any compliments, comments and/or complaints
  • Ensuring that any cleaning chemicals and equipment are stored safely
