Do you want to give excellent individualised care, to enable someone to die in their own home?

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an enthusiastic Healthcare Assistant (HCA) to join our team providing care throughout Herefordshire. We work in partnership with St Michael’s Hospice to deliver care and support to people with terminal illnesses whilst also offering vital emotional support for their families.

Multi-visit Service – Day contract:

120 hours per a month or As & When Contracts available  

With experience of End of Life care, you're ready and able to make a real difference. Ours is a one-to-one approach to care, so you're sure to enjoy plenty of meaningful contact with patients and their families - usually in their own homes. Working without close supervision, you'll have the opportunity to use your own initiative in line with the patient's established care plan. You'll be required to carry out a range of duties including helping patients meet their hygiene needs, monitoring symptoms, assisting with medications and keeping detailed records.

To join our dedicated, caring team, you'll need relevant community experience, an S/NVQ Level 2/3 qualification or an equivalent certificate/diploma in Health and Social Care. Emotional strength and the ability to work on your own are crucial, though we will of course provide excellent on-going training and support. Due to the nature of the role the ability to work nights is essential, as is access and use of a car. Access to a computer and the internet is required in order to meet mandatory training requirements.
