We’re recruiting a Care Assistant to join our team in Exeter, Exmouth, Crediton, Cullompton, Honiton, Axminster and the surroundings, delivering quality care in the home. This role involves working as part of a small health and social care team to support people with day-to-day activities, in line with their individual care plans. Your various duties will include aiding with medication support, clinical needs, posture care, personal care tasks, feeding and PEG care and any additional services needed. Specialist training will be given, tailored to the packages of care you work on, so this is a great chance to upskill in new areas.
