Job description

We are seeking an experienced Healthcare Assistant to provide complex care in the home of our client who has a C4 spinal injury.

Our client’s injury means that he has no feeling from the shoulders down and therefore relies on his care team for all aspects of his daily living. He has a supra-pubic catheter and suffers with frequent episodes of autonomic dysreflexia.

We provide a package of care over 7 days a week covering both days and nights, so we can offer both full and part time shift patterns. Day shifts are from 9:30am to 9:30pm and nights are 9:30pm to 9:30am. It is important that we can provide this client with continuity in his care team so we need people who can commit to the long term.

Our client really loves football and fishing, so it would be brilliant to have carers on the team who could share these interests. He lives on his own in a specially adapted bungalow and has several pets.

You will be supporting with all aspects of personal care, moving and handling and bowel care. Our client has a nebuliser, which you will also support with along with monitoring any symptoms of Autonomic Dysrefliexia.

This role will suit patient, kind and tenacious care staff with a mature outlook.

Essential skills

  • At least 6 months care experience
  • Experience working with spinal injuries
  • Car driver

  • Excellent rates of pay
  • Full clinical training specific to your client's needs

  • Ongoing professional training and development
  • 24/7 emergency on-call
