Job description

As a Care Assistant, you can make a real difference in the lives of people living with complex healthcare needs!

At Newcross Healthcare, we believe that everyone has the right to the highest quality of care in the home, when they need it. We’re currently on the lookout for a Care Assistant to deliver personalised care in the home in Paignton.

In this role, you'll join a friendly, supportive team of health and social care professionals providing 2:1 care for a lady with an immune disorder which has left her non verbal and typically bed bound. Your various duties will include assisting with personal care tasks, PEG care (medication, fluids and nutrition), moving and handling, airway management and supporting with epilepsy. You will also be required to support with personal care, toileting, airway management and medication administration during night shifts.

This role involves waking night shifts.

Role requirements

You’ll have a minimum of 3 months experience of caring professionally or for a loved one, a valid certificate in Moving and Handling and the right to work in the UK. We also expect you to demonstrate our core values of positivity, trustworthiness, respectfulness, understanding, kindness, and calmness on every shift. Access to your own vehicle would be beneficial, but is not a requirement.

Please note: To work in a care home in England from 11 November 2021, the post holder is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 unless clinically exempt.
