Job Description

Orchid Care Home is purpose-built, with 84 single ensuite rooms for residents who require nursing care, some have mental health issues such as dementia, and some need end-of-life care. Our residents are supported by our skilled and dedicated teams to have maximum choice and control of their lives in the least restrictive way possible.

Role:

Due to a new unit being opened in our beautiful and friendly home, we need care assistants to work full time days or nights. We need flexible and compassionate people to help us deliver the type of care you’d want your own relatives to have.

Experience is valuable, but not essential. We are looking for genuine, caring and hard-working people who really want to make a positive difference to the lives of our residents.  We will provide you with your uniform, and the support and training you need, including induction, the Care Certificate and ongoing development.

Your role will be to ensure the general well-being of our residents, promoting their independence, choice and dignity by delivering the highest standards of care. You will help with personal care, such as washing, bathing and dressing, supporting people who need help at meal times, and by taking part in social activities with residents, both individually and as part of a group.

All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances to ensure the safeguarding of adults. Successful applicants are required to provide an enhanced DBS disclosure, at their own cost.

Covid vaccinations:  If offered employment, you must produce evidence that you have either commenced or completed the vaccination programme. If not, you must agree to have both vaccinations, commencing the programme at the first available opportunity. All care home staff need to be fully vaccinated by 11th November 2021, or prove medical exemption. This is a legal requirement and applies to everyone working in a care home.

Company:

We invest in our staff in training and development above the national guidelines as we recognise our staff are the key to our success. Recruiting and retaining the right staff is paramount. We do this by valuing their input and empowering them throughout their roles.
