This is what Sarah from Elmswood advises:

Work experience starts Thursday 23rd July for 10 weeks.

Rachel will work a 7am – 1.30pm shift with the care team.

We thought to start you off with some tasks that may be more relevant to social work eg choosing clothes for residents, keeping residents company – and perhaps helping them connect with others. After a few weeks we may look at what other tasks you can do etc

We will organise a uniform shirt for you, and please wear black pants and comfy shoes. Please let me know what size top you usually wear.

When you arrive, you will need to push the buzzer on the door, and you will need to sign in in the visitors book (like last time you came)
