Description✓About The Role
✓The care sector is such a rich and rewarding place to work
✓There is variety in your work and in the roles available - you don't have to be a carer to make a meaningful difference in our care homes
✓We want the kindest and most resilient people to come and support our residents - no two days will be the same and you will receive the learning and development you need to thrive.
✓As a Senior Care Assistant at HC One, Kindness will be at the core of everything you do
✓It touches upon every aspect of our Dementia, Nursing, Residential and Specialist care homes
✓Every single person who works here understands that our residents are people just like them with their own stories to tell
✓And, by joining us, you'll have a wonderful opportunity to give something back to those people.
✓For you, that will mean planning and implementing the kind of care that will give our residents a real sense of security, dignity and independence
✓You will get to know our residents and their families - helping to ensure we deliver truly personalised care plans
✓Leading a team of Care Assistants, you will be responsible for maintaining the highest standards of care and you'll be a real influence on the rest of the team
✓Whether you are showing someone how to use a walking frame, helping someone at the end of their life to eat a meal or talking to a resident's family on the phone, you'll do so with a sense of kindness, above anything else
✓Assisting the Registered Nurse and Care Manager, you will be involved in providing essential physical and mental stimulation through a range of social and recreational activities, as well as administering medication
✓One of your key responsibilities as Senior Care Assistant is to maintain accurate records of the job you do and build strong relationships with the rest of your team.
✓Ideally, you'll have an S/NVQ 2 or 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care, a background in person centered care planning and knowledge of caring for people with dementia
✓What's essential, though, is your brilliant positive energy and natural ability to get along with people
✓You'll know what good record keeping looks like and be able to manage your time effectively
✓And, whenever you communicate with a resident or co-worker, you'll be truly considerate and kind.
✓Well, after all, it's just in your nature.
✓Hourly rate is subject to experience and qualifications.
