Apollo Home Healthcare specialise in the delivery of complex care to both children and adults within their own homes. We are currently recruiting experienced female care assistants to provide care in the home of our client based in Liverpool.
This gentleman has suffered a C5-C6 spinal injury and is wheelchair dependent at all times. He requires the use of a hoist for all transfers and requires support with all of his personal care needs.
He is also prone to Autonomic Dysreflexia, which his care team need to be aware of at all times.
Our client lives in his own fully adapted bungalow and requires support to allow him to continue to live independently.
You will be required to support our client with every day tasks as well as managing his medication and providing catheter care.
He enjoys going out into the community and has his own adapted vehicle, so care drivers would be advantageous.
Applicants must have at least 6 months care experience, ideally with exposure to caring for clients with a spinal injury.
