Job description

Apollo Home Healthcare is looking for an experienced Healthcare Assistant in the Ilkeston area to support our 14-year-old client who has Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy; a severe restrictive lung disease.

We provide a package of care throughout the night from 9:45pm to 7:45am from Monday to Thursday. We do also provide care throughout the day and whilst we are fully staffed for these shifts at present, there may be opportunities to pick these up in the future.

You will be required to support with ventilation management and suctioning as well as medication administration via PEG and personal care. In addition to the complex clinical tasks within this package, our client really enjoys the companionship of his care team and therefore you will play an important role in his social development.
