Eothen Homes are pleased to confirm we are expanding!
We are opening a brand new house within our existing 52 bed Dementia care home in Wallsend. With this exciting change comes the opportunity for brilliant new staff to join our team.
We currently have opportunities for full time Care Assistants to join us. The successful candidates will work an average of 33.75 hours per week over 5 days on a three week rolling rota.
We are looking for people who are intuitive, flexible and aware of what matters most in life. People who can demonstrate compassion and empathy and who are committed to improving the quality of life for older people. Experience of working in a dementia care setting could be an advantage but is not essential.
A major part of the role will be to enable and support people to remain in charge of their own life by adopting a person centred approach that feels like home and where people feel secure and happy, where it sounds like being among friends and looks like fun. The successful candidates will actively involve residents in everyday living by creating meaningful occupation and activities. All support and care will take place at a time that suits the residents, not a time dictated by routine and lists.
The successful candidates will also provide physical support and personal care to the residents of the home, to ensure that each resident is provided with an environment, which allows them as much freedom and independence as they are able to manage.
Eothen offer a fully funded BUPA cash back scheme to all employees. Benefits include dental treatments, optical treatments, prescriptions, therapies and access to shopping discounts to numerous high street and on line stores.
Public holiday working will attract time and a half.
An enhanced Disclosure Barring Service check will be required.
This is your chance to make a difference!
