Would you describe yourself as hard-working and enthusiastic? If you’re positive and passionate about empowering vulnerable individuals, then you’re exactly who we’re looking for.
Whether you’re ready for a change in your career or want to take the next step in a position you’re already passionate about, everything you do will help create a world without limits – for the residents you empower and your own career development. Together we make sure they get the personalised care they need, whether they’re socialising or enjoying their passions and hobbies.
SUMMARY OF THE ROLE
As a care assistant, you will work with vulnerable adults to help them live their lives to the full wherever they are able. It is the ultimate ‘people job’ – you will build solid relationships and trust with the vulnerable service users, sometimes in challenging situations.
Your daily routine will be varied. You will support the service users to wash, dress, undress and help them with continence care, feeding, hydration, oral care, hair care, nail care and emotional support and stimulation. This will include encouraging them to participate in activities.
A care assistant plays a significant role in creating a happy and caring environment by adopting a totally flexible approach and attitude to the challenges of the post. You will support service users with dignity, empathy and respect and you will promote independence, inclusion and stimulation at all times.
We will train you in all aspects of care and ensure that your training is up to date and refreshed regularly.
