Carer – in a Care Home
As a Carer at HC One, you’ll value kindness above all. Because it drives 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 support residents with all aspects of day to day living and to undertake other activities to assist in the running of the home.
Salary is dependent on role and experience, if you would like to know more please call Kelly-Anne on 0333 999 8487
For you, that will mean delivering a level of care that truly comes from the heart. It’s about making sure our residents never lose their dignity or sense of individuality as you get involved in general activities. And, whether you’re helping someone with limited mobility to learn to use an aid, offering emotional support to a confused or distressed resident or delivering care to someone at the end of their life, you’ll always have their well being in mind above anything else.
Ideally, you’ll have an S/NVQ 2 Diploma in Health & Social Care, a driving licence, a background in person centred care planning and knowledge of caring for people with dementia. What’s essential, though, are 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.
