Care Assistant - Brain Injury
Posted on Apr 10, 2021 by CV-Library
Are you ready to play your part in the national care effort?
As a Female or Male Care Assistant in the Eastville area of Bristol, you'll play a vital role in safeguarding and supporting the vulnerable people in your local community during these unprecedented times. You'll be supporting a male service user living with a brain injury as part of a 2:1 package of care.
Complex care roles with Newcross provide you with a unique chance to take on new responsibilities and receive specialist clinical training areas such as PEG feeding and tracheostomy care. You'll also get access to free virtual training opportunities and apprenticeships to take your career in whichever direction you want to go.
To apply for this rewarding role, you will need to have a minimum of 3 months of prior experience in a professional care setting or caring for a loved one. This will ensure you have an emotional and clinical understanding of what it takes to deliver home care.
You'll need to be an approachable and understanding people person, ready to become a key part of your service users' support network. You may need to assist clients with limited mobility, however, if you do not have a valid Moving and Handling certificate, we can provide relevant training modules for you to complete in the induction process. Access to your own vehicle is desirable but not required, as is the right to work in the UK.
The ideal candidate will have previous experience of caring for service users with brain injuries.
