Full Time, Part Time, Days, Nights,
It isn’t often we recruit care assistants who can commit to lots of play time...! But this is exactly what we are doing for our 2-year-old client based in the Aldridge/Walsall area.
This lovely little boy has a muscle weakening condition and some complex care requirements which mean that he is fully ventilated via tracheostomy and fed via a PEG.
Has a muscle weakening condition means that he has daily physio and requires lots of daily play activity to help strengthen his muscles. He has suffered two cardiac arrests since birth but has been stable for several months now and can now hold his head up and sit up on his own for a short time.
In addition to the social element of this package you will also be required to support with the use of his nebuliser, PEG feeding and tracheostomy care including suctioning and cough assist. Training will be provided but we do need care assistants who have exposure to working within complex care.
We are looking for someone who has previous tracheostomy experience and has worked with children before.
We provide both day and night shifts to this client. Days we can offer either 8am to 2pm or 8am to 6pm. Nights are from 8pm to 8am.
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:
