Apollo Home Healthcare is seeking experienced Health Care Assistants to support a young boy with complex care needs.

We are looking for dedicated and compassionate Health Care Assistants who are passionate about their job, enjoy delivering one to one support and who can build positive relationships with our service users and their families.

Our service user is a young boy who likes being cheeky and having fun. He needs the people around him, including his care team, to treat him as an equal and not as a baby as this causes him to feel frustrated, as does completing the weekly family shop!

He attends school and his favourite subject is PE, you are required to support him here throughout the day with his clinical needs.

The ideal candidate will be required to support him socially and interact with him using his communication equipment to make sure that he receives the highest standard of care.

For this position you will be providing support both home and at school (during day shifts).

Our service user is a 8-year-old boy who has a brain and spinal injury. He has very limited movement and is prone to seizures.

He requires support with all aspects of his care, which includes ventilator management and tracheostomy care, supporting the use of a nebuliser and cough assist, bowel and bladder management, PEG feeds and catheterisation.

Due to his limited movement moving and handling and personal care is required.

Essential Experience Required

• 6 months previous care experience

• Medication Administration

• Personal Care

Desirable Experience

• Tracheostomy Care

• Ventilation Management

• Bowel & Bladder Management

We have the following shifts available;

• Day shifts from 7am to 7pm

• Night shifts from 7pm to 7am

This is a personally rewarding role where you can build on your clinical skills and experience, whilst delivering exceptional care and support to our service user and really making an impact on his day to day life.

Why work for Apollo Home Healthcare?

We specialise in the provision of highly complex clinical care services delivered in the homes of service users.

We are passionate about delivering the highest standard of care and we recognise that our Nurses, Healthcare Assistants and Support Workers are integral to doing this. In return for your hard work and dedication you will receive:

  • Full clinical training
  • Opportunity to work with other service users in the area
  • Ongoing professional training and development
