£9.50 - £13.00 Per Hour
Dewsbury - West Yorkshire
Apollo Home Healthcare is currently providing a package of care to a baby who was born with a very rare condition, which has meant she has spent the first months of her life in hospital. We are now looking to recruit a team of female healthcare assistants who can provide complex care to her when she goes home for the first time.
This lovely little baby was born with Marshall Smith Syndrome, which means she requires support with breathing and has a tracheostomy and humidifier. She is fed via a naso-gastric tube and has very limited vision. You will be required to support her complex clinical needs as well as providing stimulation and engagement through play, touch and sound. The support of a dedicated care team is vital for this client’s parents who desperately want her to be at home with them in order to have a quality family life.
Because we are providing round the clock care we have shifts available both during the day and at night. Day time support will mostly be provided in mornings, but some flexibility will be required to meet the family’s needs. The care will be provided over 7 nights and so weekend working will be included on a rota basis.
You must have a mature outlook, a strong disposition and be able to work with the family in a sensitive and respectful manner.
This baby has very complex needs and this role at times may be very emotionally challenging. Being able to endure the challenge with the support of the Apollo management team will be critical to the success of this baby’s transition to home.
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:
