Portsmouth Rotary Housing Association Scheme Managers perform a variety of tasks necessary to ensure services are delivered effectively to residents.
Scheme Manager duties include:
- Reporting repairs and maintenance requirements of their property
- Advising and supporting residents with rent and service charge queries
- Compliance with statutory regulations with particular regard to Health & Safety
- Regular checks to ensure the correct operation of fire alarms, emergency call systems etc
- Communicating with other professionals such as doctors, health visitors, carers and OT’s
- Encouraging successful social activities
- General advice and support to residents
- Liaising with family members of residents where necessary
There are, however some tasks which the Scheme Managers are not able to undertake, for example:-
- Day to day personal care of individual residents.
- Nursing or other medical requirements. If regular treatment is required they will be happy to advise residents and their families on how to access the service required. They are not allowed under any circumstances to administer drugs or medicines.
- Scheme Managers are not there to carry out domestic chores for residents such as shopping, cleaning, cooking etc although they will endeavour to assist a resident to do these things for themselves.
- Scheme Managers are not allowed to lift residents who have fallen over but will, if required, summon appropriate assistance.
Purpose built sheltered housing schemes have 24hr emergency cover linked Separate door entry systems enable tenants to view visitors at the main front door before allowing access.
