The key worker is also responsible for ensuring that any aids are maintained in a fault free, working condition; ensure that clothes are kept tidy (with residents permission); ensure that resident's shopping needs are met; arrange outings on a one-to-one basis and help arrange appointements in the community and much more. Overall the key worker ensures that the resident's needs are being met and the resident is happy and comfortable.
