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

At Haven Lodge we offer a warm, friendly welcome by the sea.
Located just metres from the seafront, Haven Lodge is a welcoming care home at the end of a quiet residential cul-de-sac in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex.
We provide nursing, respite and end of life care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other sorts of dementia.
Our warm, supportive approach involves really getting to know each resident and making sure they're settled and happy. We develop personal care programmes for each individual, including activities based around their interests.
Every month, we meet with residents and their families for an informal chat. It's another chance to listen to any feedback or suggestions they might have for us.
We also compile a monthly newsletter, which we hand out at the meetings.
We extend our care to residents' loved ones too. Our experienced, friendly team is always there with a listening ear and a cup of tea we make the time to sit, talk and, if we’re asked, offer helpful advice.
Relatives find this very comforting and appreciate knowing that we're there for them as well.
