Job description

Apollo Home Healthcare is currently recruiting experienced care assistants to work night shifts with our young client in the Cleveleys area.

This lovely young lady has severe Scolliosis and Epilepsy, meaning she has some very complex clinical requirements. She lives at home with her parents in a fully adapted house that has everything from a therapy and sensory room to a fully equipped garden she can access.

Working on this package will involve providing a lot of support with posture and pain management. She has a tracheostomy in situ and gastrostomy for feed and medication, so this will require maintaining as well as her rescue medication for seizures. Tracheostomy training including suctioning will be provided by our in-house Nurses.

Our client is very sociable and really enjoys going to school. She cannot communicate verbally but smiles when she is happy and her body language communicates her mood.

Although the client has support within the day we are looking for night workers to work on a week based on a set rota. Night shifts are 10pm - 8am.

Desired skills

  • At least 12 month's care experience
  • Exposure to tracheostomy care desirable
  • Seizure management

Essential skills

We cannot accept applications from candidates who cannot evidence at least 6 months care experience.

If you would like further information about this role please feel free to apply and a member of our team will be in contact.

  • 24/7 emergency on-call
