Job title: Service Manager, Supported Housing
Years working with Dublin Simon Community: 6
I joined Dublin Simon Community in 2016 and have been lucky to progress through several different roles. I am currently the Service Manager in Oak House.
Oak House has 32 residents of all ages living in long-term supported accommodation. The residents have all meals cooked onsite and have access to a Primary Care Health Nurse. There are lots of activities to support their mental and physical health.
A normal day for me includes check-ins with the team, chatting with residents, providing supervision, dealing with incidents, working with staff members on resident support plans and a range of other tasks that arise from the type of work we are doing here. No two days are ever the same!
