Keen to build lasting relationships with service users and their families while you provide support for them within their own home, you’ll be on hand to help with a variety of tasks. You'll join a small health and social care team to support children with clinical needs, personal care tasks, making up beds, feeding and PEG care, social activities and any additional services required.
