You will also be required to provide ventilator management as well as some personal care and bowel management. In addition to the clinical tasks you will also be required to support with meal preparation and general domestic duties within certain areas of the home.

This client does not leave her home, so her care team are really important to her. On top of giving her the clinical support that she needs they also provide social companionship, sharing her enjoyment of music and watching Sunday Service. Continuity of care is essential, so we are looking for staff that can commit to regular, on-going shifts.

The right candidate will have a strong background in delivering care in a home environment including personal care and moving and handling. Experience in the more complex clinical tasks would be desirable, however one of the benefits of working on this package is that we can provide training to support your development into complex care.
