Care Assistant - Days
Are you looking for a rewarding new job? Do you like helping people get the most out of life?
Vida Healthcare is looking for caring, conscientious people to join our brand new team at Vida Grange, helping to support older people living with dementia. You would be joining us at an exciting time, for the opening of our brand new, state of the art home in Pannal this November.
About the role
As care assistant you will support our residents, working in a way that respects their dignity and promotes independence. Duties will include:
- Assisting with personal care needs
- Helping with mobility around the home
- Providing support at meal times
- Responding to assistance calls
It takes a special kind of person to support someone living with dementia and we’re looking for just that; special people who will share our commitment to providing quality care that improves lives.
Previous care experience would be advantageous but not essential as full training will be provided. You do not need an in depth knowledge of dementia – we will guide you with ongoing, bespoke training – but you must be a team player and have a positive, patient attitude. Most of all, we are looking for people who genuinely care about helping others.
Respect, dignity, fairness, equality and autonomy are the core values that underpin everything we do at Vida Healthcare. If you share these values then we would love to hear from you.
We were rated 'Outstanding' by the CQC in 2014 and we won the 2016 Skills for Care 'Best Employer of less than 250 Staff'. Join our team and you'll get a fantastic rate of pay, flexible hours and ongoing training opportunities. Most of all, you will be a truly valued member of the team.
