Are you a kind and caring person?
Do you enjoy helping others and need to earn some money?
Do you live or can you travel to Southport and the surrounding areas for work?
We have an opportunity for you to help and support people in their own home to enjoy the final days of their lives with dignity and peace. We teach you how to deliver care to a great standard and become a valuable healthcare professional for your local community. You must already have a kind nature, be hard working and enjoy the role of helping others.
We will support you to learn how to help people to move safely without hurting them. How to support them with their medication and their personal hygiene needs, such as washing, toileting and dressing and critically, to understand their health needs so that you can support them appropriately.
We help you to settle into your role by sending you out to job shadow another carer and see first hand how we deliver care services and we offer you ongoing support with one to one supervision sessions and quality checks, to go over things that you feel uncertain of to support you to develop your skills and become confident.
Our care staff enjoy working for us and benefit from our ethos of ongoing support, training and feeling supported to do a great job. We have regular nights coming on from the palliative care team and you are trained by both us and the local hospice to support you to meet the needs of this challenging but rewarding role.
