Description : The Ayrshire Hospice provides quality specialist palliative care for adults with life-limiting illness within Ayrshire and Arran.
We provide a wide range of services and care in people's homes, care homes and hospitals, as well as in the hospice itself.
This is provided at no cost to our patients or their families. Our vision is to reach and improve the lives of everyone in Ayrshire affected by life-
limiting illness. We are currently looking to recruit three Senior Care Assistants to join the nursing team in the In-Patient unit (IPU).
As part of the multi-disciplinary team and under the supervision of the registered nurses you will provide high quality, safe, effective person centred care to patients and their families in the IPU.
You should have an SVQ 3 qualification in health care or relevant experience of working at an advanced level within the Care Assistant role and be willing to work towards this qualification.
You should have the ability to provide care to an allocated case load of patients with complex care needs but who are symptomatically stable, without direct supervision.
A proven history of continued professional development as well as experience of mentorship or coaching would be desirable.
In addition, well developed communication skills including listening skills are required. As part of the hospice team, you can enjoy a variety of benefits including a competitive salary, generous annual leave, organisational pension scheme, employee assistance programme, comprehensive induction, continuous learning and development opportunities and access to the NHS Staff Benefits Scheme.
