Job description

We have a position available for an experienced care assistant to provide care to a 2-year-old girl who has some complex care needs.

Our young client was born with Cystic Hygroma. Her condition means that she requires a tracheostomy to ensure she maintains a safe airway and has the use of a nebuliser. She also suffers with Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux and receives medication for this.

We provide a package of care to this client throughout the day and night from Monday to Friday. Night shifts are from 7pm to 8am and days are 8am to 6pm. On a Friday she goes to nursery, so hours are 8am to 12:30pm.

You will be required to support with tracheostomy care including suctioning, administering nutrition and hydration enterally via PEG, and supporting the use of her nebuliser. Our client will need support with all aspects of her personal care, which being a toddler will include changing nappies, ensuring her skin is clean and dry and any creams applied as prescribed and encouraging her to brush her teeth as part of her routine.

Despite her complex care needs our client is still a typical 2-year-old girl who loves Disney films and all things ‘princess’. She is learning to communicate via Makaton and loves interactivity with her care team.

Essential skills

  • At least 6 months care experience
  • Experience working with a tracheostomy and nebuliser
  • PEG feeding
