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 boy 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 child who lives at home with his family in Milton Keynes.

He likes to play board games and interactive games with his care team. He especially enjoys playing on his iPad watching programs such as watching Peppa Pig and Ben and Hollie.

He can be shy initially and may need encouragement and reassurance, so we are looking for someone who is able to interact easily and get involved in his hobbies and interests.

He requires care throughout the night and likely to be settled in bed upon arrival.

He often sleeps well but requires close supervision, regular observations to be documented and for his clinical interventions to be carried out as required.

Please note, due to the location of our service user, we require drivers with access to a vehicle.

Essential Experience Required

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

Desirable Experience

  • Tracheostomy Care
  • Ventilation Management
  • Gastrostomy Care (PEG Feeding)
  • Oral Suctioning

Shifts available

  • Nights - 10pm - 7am
  • 3 shifts per week

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, 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:

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