At Abbeyfield we believe older people deserve time and respect. It's our mission to provide the best service of care and housing for all our residents, and to be a champion for older people. We have been a charitable housing organisation for nearly 60 years. Throughout this time our residents are always at the heart of what we do and the services we provide.
We are looking to recruit Care Assistants who can demonstrate compassion and empathy in their approach to caring for older people, either through previous roles in social care or in other roles.
Can you show us how you would treat our residents, and demonstrate to us how you could offer the dignity and respect they have a right to expect?
The role of a Care Assistant involves creating an atmosphere that is warm and welcoming, ensuring that every resident enjoys life with us to the full. Promoting the physical, social, intellectual and emotional wellbeing of our residents, you will assist in the promotion of their independence. Duties will include providing assistance to residents with their personal care to include washing, dressing and assisting residents in all aspects of their daily lives as required.
Previous experience for this role is essential with evidence that you have achieved an NVQ level 2 in Health and Social Care or willing to work towards this qualification together with the completion of the Care Certificate. If you have the right values for our organisation, you will be supported by a programme of continuous training and development.
