Job description

We are currently recruiting an experienced care assistant to provide care in the home of an 8-year-old boy who has some complex clinical care needs.

Our client has a condition called Myotubular Myopathy which effects his muscles and means that he requires ventilation 24 hours a day. He is immobile and is wheelchair dependent at all times, so requires two care assistants for all transfers.

We deliver a package of care that covers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, Day shifts are from 8am to 8pm and nights are 8pm to 8am. We are looking to speak to staff who can work 2-3 nights every week

Our young client is non-verbal and whilst he understands everything that is said to him, he will use Makaton to communicate. He is nil by mouth and fed via Mic-Key button and has a tracheostomy and ventilator attached at all times.

Despite his complex care needs, our client is still a typical 8-year-old boy who loves going out with his family and care team on local trips. He loves engaging with his care team and is a wonderful little boy to work with.

We are looking for care staff who have exposure to working with children with complex care needs. Ideally you will have experience working with a tracheostomy including suctioning and working with a gastrostomy, however training will be available for the right candidate.

  • At least 6 month's care experience
  • Moving and handling
  • Exposure to delivering complex care in the home
