A bit about the post

You’ll work on a rota basis across 7 days where you must be flexible, and able to work extra hours to cover annual leave and sickness absence.

The role of the Care Assistant is to support our residents, ensuring emotional and social needs are met.  You’ll promote independence, choice and dignity and assist with personal care activities such as washing, dressing. You’ll be part of daily recreational social activities within groups and one to one. 

To flourish in the role you will be enthusiastic, and genuinely care about making a positive difference to our residents’ lives. It’s important to us that you have the compassion and empathy to work with vulnerable people in a Residential Care Home setting. Previous experience of caring for adults would be extremely useful but not essential.  What you do need is to be able to verbally communicate in the English language with the client group and have good literacy skills and be able to juggle several tasks at the same time.
