Job description

We are seeking an experienced Healthcare Assistant to provide complex care in the home of a toddler with some extremely complex care needs.

Our client has Global Development Delay. Her condition means that she has severe learning disabilities as well as problems with her heart and hearing and sight loss, so she needs a strong care team around her to provide full time support.

We provide a package of complex care to this young lady 7 nights a week. She has a history of cardiac arrest and also suffers seizures which will require managing. She will also require oxygen therapy and oral suctioning throughout the night.

In addition to her complex care needs, our client is just a toddler, so she also needs the softer skills that will help and comfort her when dealing with such complex issues. She lives in a bustling household with her three siblings, so your support will be imperative not only on a practical level but also emotional for the family.

Continuity of this client’s care team is absolutely vital, so we need Healthcare Assistants who can commit in the long term. Both full and part time night shifts are available on a rota basis.
