Apollo Home Healthcare is currently recruiting an experienced Care Assistant to provide care to our client who muscular condition along with a condition that affects her speech.

Our client’s condition means that she is unable to mobilise independently and has a stoma and supra pubic catheter as well as a PEG for her medication. She has difficulties communicating as her speech is very slurred, so care staff need to be patient and get to know her to understand her needs.

We provide a package of care that covers mornings and evenings, so we can offer a mixture of shifts which include;

8pm to 10pm - Mon-Sun 9am to 11am - Sat 10am to 12pm - Sun

We are looking for support workers who ideally have experience working with challenging behaviour to support the dynamics within her home. Ideally you will also have experience delivering medication via PEG and delivering catheter care.

Our client enjoys watching TV and particularly loves quiz shows and doing cross words. Ideally we need care staff that can commit to our client in the long term to ensure she has continuity of care.

Why work for Apollo?

We are passionate about delivering the highest standard of care and we recognise that our employees are integral to doing this. In return for your hard work and dedication you will receive:

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