ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Bank Night Care Assistant at a Kernow House, you’ll help residents throughout the night by making sure they get the quality care and support they deserve. You’ll assist with daily living, providing support and companionship – and sharing great moments and memories too. Kernow House is part of our complex-care division, offering support to 84 residents with Huntington’s Disease and advanced dementia. As one of only 4 nationally recognised care centres for Huntington’s Disease, the home offers excellent learning and progression opportunities for Care Assistants to develop into Care Practitioners. Residents range in age from 30-80, so there is plenty of diversity in this role. You will support residents with physical and mental health needs, and will be trained in new techniques. We are looking for a Bank Night Care Assistant who is passionate about promoting a high quality of care and ensuring that residents are treated with dignity and respect. In return for your dedication, we are offering flexible working hours to suit your lifestyle and mileage contributions.
Barchester is the only healthcare provider in the UK to be accredited as one of the best companies to work for, so why not join us?
You’ll need to have empathy, a can-do approach and excellent communication skills to join us as a Night Care Assistant. If you have that, then you don’t need any specific care experience as we’ll provide the ongoing specialist training you need to thrive. Above all, you’ll have real compassion for all our residents in order to deliver the highest standard of care and support.
As well as competitive pay, you can look forward to a role that offers true flexibility and plenty of free learning and development opportunities. As one of the UK’s leading healthcare providers, we take the growth of everyone who works for us seriously.
As this is a Bank position to provide cover as and when we need it, such as for annual leave or sick leave, the hours and days you work will vary.
If you’d like to use your people skills in an organisation that provides the quality care you’d expect for your loved ones, this is a rewarding place to be.
