Job description

Are you looking to expand your skills and enhance your career to include providing Complex Clinical Care or do you already have Complex Care experience?

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

We are looking for dedicated and compassionate 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 toddler who lives with her family in Spilsby.

She is a very sociable young girl who likes to interact with her care team and have lots of cuddles.

Due to her age, she is not able to effectively communicate her needs and will often make noises or use facial expressions to do so. She may kick her legs if she is frustrated or excited and she will stick out her tongue for some extra attention!

It is important that her care team can interpret her various forms of communication and anticipate her needs to avoid any distress.

She enjoys playtime activities, sensory play and watching her favourite programs on TV. - Disney films are her favourite.

You will be supporting her throughout the night, ensuring that she is comfortable and carrying out any clinical interventions as required.

She is normally very settled during the night but should she wake, you will provide reassurance by comforting her back to sleep with stories, playing on her tablet or simply talking to her to calm her down.

Our ideal applicant will have a genuine interest of working with children and preferably, be skilled in tracheostomy care, although this is not essential.

Essential Experience Required

  • 6 months previous care experience
  • Medication Administration
  • Personal Care
  • Moving and Handling

Desirable Experience

  • Trachestomy Care
  • Ventilation Management
  • Oral Suctioning
  • Nebuliser Care *Gastrostomy Care (PEG Feeding)
  • Stoma Care

We have the following shifts available;

  • Part Time Nights – between 22:00 – 09:30
  • Adhoc days available

Please note, our service user is based in Spilsby

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 her 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.
