What you’ll be doing

Being a Senior Care Assistant isn’t just about providing leadership and support for a care team. It’s about acting as a role model for good practice and a champion for residents’ dignity and safety.

It’s about regularly assessing, monitoring and reviewing day-to-day processes and coming up with improvements where required.

And, it's about ensuring that clear and accurate records and communication systems relating to clinical and care delivery are properly maintained and effectively used.

Put simply, it’s about making a difference. A real difference.
