Job description

Apollo Home Healthcare is currently recruiting an experienced care assistant to support a lovely gentleman who has a spinal injury and recently suffered a stroke, which has left him with limited mobility and the requirement for support around his home and in the community.

Our client’s stroke has affected his communication and movement down one side of his body. He has a supra pubic catheter in situ and requires hoisting for all movements. He is paralysed from the chest down but can use a wheelchair independently and drives his own adapted car.

We provide a package of care that covers days from 8am to 10pm and sleeping nights from 10pm to 8am. We can offer either of these shift patterns on a full or part time basis.

Our client lives at home with his wife and child so you will play a critical role in supporting him and his family. You must have a patient temperament as he struggles with his speech and can become frustrated. Ideally you will be able to commit in the long term to provide continuity of care.

You will be providing support with personal care and moving and handling, catheter care and conducting bladder washouts twice a week. The client is an insulin dependent diabetic, so you will be monitoring blood sugars frequently.

Why work for Apollo?

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

  • Excellent rates of pay
  • Full clinical training specific to your client's needs
  • Opportunity to work with other clients in the area
  • Ongoing professional training and development
  • 24/7 emergency on-call

To apply for this position please feel free to call us on 01902 847111 or click apply now and a member of our recruitment team will be happy to contact you.

Apollo Home Healthcare is an equal opportunities employer (Agy). Please do not apply unless you can evidence previous experience.
