Job description

Are you experienced in providing Complex Care to children and young people?

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

We are looking for dedicated and compassionate Healthcare 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 happy, young toddler who lives with her family in Milton Keynes.

At home she likes playing with sensory toys that make lots of noise, listening to nursery rhymes and being read to.

She also enjoys days out to soft play, interacting and saying hello to everyone she meets. She is looking forward to this when restrictions are eased.

Her goal is to start walking, move around more independently and for her care team to encourage communication and speech.

You will be supporting her throughout the night, carrying out all personal care, regular nappy changes and tending to her clinical interventions as required.

She is unable to eat and drink orally and all nutrition is administered via TPN. Although the TPN will not be managed by her care team, you will undergo awareness training to ensure that the tubing does not become twisted or pulled out of place. This is needs to be monitored particularly closely whilst she is sleeping.

She can become unsettled throughout the night and can be gently soothed back to sleep by offering her comfort blanket and gently tapping her side.

Continuity of care is extremely important for this young girl as she can become distressed around new people. It is important that she has a strong relationship with her care team and has familiar, reassuring faces around her.

Applicants must have a genuine interest in working with children and be able to commit to her care on a long-term basis.

Essential Experience Required

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

Desirable Experience

  • TPN Awareness

We have the following shifts available;

  • Part Time Days - 9:30am - 3:30pm
  • Part Time Nights - 10pm – 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.

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:

  • Flexible hours to suit
  • Confirmed rotas
  • Excellent rates of pay
