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 Healthcare Assistants to support a young lady 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 lives with her family in Burton-upon-Trent and requires a care team to support her on a part time basis, every weekend.

She enjoys lots of interaction with her care team and likes reading books and engaging sensory based activities.

Watching films, TV and listening to music is another of interests; Bollywood and Disney are her favourites!

Prior to the current restrictions, she would often go to the cinema, library and visit the local park with the assistance of her care team. She is very much looking forward to accessing the community again when circumstances allow.

Our service user is unable to communicate verbally and will use facial expressions and noises to display her emotion. She will smile when she is happy and frown or cry when she is unhappy or experiencing discomfort.

She will try her best to aid communication, for example blinking in response to a question.

It is important that you can understand and interpret her wants and needs to avoid her becoming distressed or frustrated.

Essential Experience Required

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

Desirable Experience

  • Gastrostomy Care (PEG Feeding)
  • Oral Suction
  • Nebuliser Care
  • Ventilation Management

We have the following shifts available;

  • Part Time Days – 8am - 8pm
  • Part Time Nights - 8pm - 8am
  • Includes alternate weekends

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.

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

We need key workers on the front line supporting our service users in the fight against the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please do not hesitate to contact our dedicated recruitment team on 01902 847111 or email on recruitment@apollohomehealthcare.com to find out more.
