Job description

At Newcross, we offer you the chance to change lives in your community

We’re actively seeking an experienced Care Assistant to join our team in Bristol, Backwell, Failand and the surrounding areas, encouraging our service users to live a rich, independent life. In this role, you’ll work as part of a close-knit, collaborative health and social care team, delivering care in the home. You’ll follow each individual’s care plan, playing a key role in aiding with clinical needs, personal care tasks, medication support, meal preparation, feeding and PEG care, social activities and any additional complex care tasks required.
