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.
What you’ll need
An NVQ and relevant experience is essential, including a good understanding of care planning processes and a proven ability to write concise care plans.
We’ll also be looking for individuals who are well-organised, with excellent supervisory skills and used to planning, allocating and delegating work appropriately.
What's more, you have experience of contributing to, monitoring and implementing changes that improve outcomes for residents.
Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.
