Healthcare Assistants perform essential roles in many acute healthcare and community care environments; from working on the wards of hospitals to providing care in people’s homes they provide an invaluable service.
Newcross has healthcare assistant jobs throughout the UK, with varying full and part-time hours but always on a permanent basis.
Our healthcare assistant jobs are based in care homes, nursing homes, hospitals and in the community. Previous experience is always highly valued as some roles require certain skills such as tracheotomy care or PEG feeding experience.
In this role, you’ll assist the elderly, recovering, or disabled clients with the activities of everyday living. You’ll provide support and companionship to clients and help clients handle day-to-day self-care, such as toileting and hygiene. You will also communicate with families of clients to apprise them of the service user’s condition and the progress they make in your care.
All our support worker jobs provide an essential service to people living either in their own homes or in a supported living environment, who face some degree of difficulty with everyday
tasks. Support workers play an essential part in promoting their independence and helping them live the lifestyle they choose.
Some of our clients have acquired brain injuries, learning disabilities, physical disabilities and others have a complex set of needs and as such may require two or more support workers at any one time. The job of the support worker is very closely linked with healthcare assistant jobs, care assistant jobs, and home carer jobs.
In this role, you’ll be supporting all kinds of people at different stages of life and you should be prepared to cater to each person’s individual requirements. Person-centred care is at the heart of our service at Newcross.
As a senior care assistant, you’ll need previous experience working with older people in residential care. You will need to be flexible, patient, caring, organised and great with people. Due to the nature of this position, it is essential that you have an NVQ3 or equivalent in health and social care. You'll also require a valid medication administration certificate, or be willing to book onto a Newcross training course.
Our business relies on the commitment and dedication of our employees to make a difference in the lives of the individuals we care for. We take pride in the quality of our care, so we're looking for experienced caregivers to enhance our services.
