Senior Care Assistant

Job Introduction

Abbeyfield is a charity for elderly people, providing housing to more than 7,000 residents across the UK and internationally. It is our mission to enhance our residents’ quality of life through high quality accommodation in a stimulating environment, maintaining a socially active life.

We’re committed to providing the highest standards of care to our residents, and we believe that great care starts with great people. The interests of our valued staff and residents sit at the heart of what we do.

Abbeyfield is more than a home; it’s a neighbourhood, a community, a family. Are you ready to be a part of it?

Role Responsibility

Each resident is unique.  The care and support they need is individualised and personal to them.  You’ll lead by example, treating people with kindness and compassion.  Your sensitive and respectful approach ensures residents maintain their dignity and feeling of self worth.    

Your caring input helps to make things as easy and comfortable as possible for our residents.  You contribute to residents' emotional wellbeing by getting to know them personally and supporting them to participate in social activities and events.  You see the benefit of this stimulation by getting involved with planning, organising and delivering these home activities and functions.

To ensure each resident's needs are met, you’ll lead with the responsibility of regular monitoring of their health, care and social needs, plus the preparation, implementation and review of their personal care plan.  This involves supervising other team members and liaising with people involved in their care, as well as with the residents themselves, to ensure their needs and wishes are at the centre of the care we provide.  

The Ideal Candidate

Experienced in health or social care, ideally working with older people, you’ll be familiar with CQC requirements.  Ideally you will be qualified to QCF Level 3 in Health & Social Care (or equivalent) or willing to undertake training to Level 3.

With more seniority comes more responsibility, so you’ll be keen to show your management skills and take charge for an entire shift, be able to work on your own initiative, and cope under pressure in a diverse and changing environment.

So if you are as passionate about care as you are about leading a team and taking responsibility, this could be the job for you.

Package Description

In return for your commitment, we offer a great pay and benefits package. This includes:

●          31 days paid leave, including bank/public holidays (pro rata)

●          Opportunity to earn a QCF Level 3 qualification in Social Care

●          Occupational sick pay scheme

●          Company pension scheme

●          Shop and save discounts
