Closing date: 04/05/2018

Location: Winnersh Woodward Close Winnersh Berks RG41 5NW

Senior Care Assistant - 14 hours per week - £10.50 per hour

Closely supporting the Home Manager, you will oversee the delivery of person-centred care and regularly review individual care plans and risk assessments. At the same time, you will administer medication, train and develop colleagues and build respectful relationships with residents.

With a flexible approach to hours and responsibilities, you will possess an appropriate NVQ level 3 and a good track record as a carer. This will have given you everything you need to operate with minimal supervision, backed by an organised but empathetic manner, real understanding of the issues and challenges facing older people and enthusiasm for gaining additional skills and qualifications.

Our dementia care home in Winnersh is a brand new concept in dementia support. Based near Wokingham, in Berkshire, the home has been specially designed to offer the best possible care to people living with dementia.

The home has been developed to allow freedom of movement throughout as it flows from one area into another without residents reaching any dead ends. At Abbeyfield Winnersh we combine cutting edge technology with expert design to offer a safe, stimulating and comfortable dementia friendly environment.

The home has 62 en-suite bedrooms together with separate spa-bathrooms, a beauty salon, lounges, a cinema, and a shop. This is surrounded by beautiful gardens which can be enjoyed by you, your family and friends.

The gardens have been created to encourage outside living, with lots of outdoor areas for residents to sit in and look at. We understand the importance of getting a varied and healthy diet, so we will ensure all residents receive nutritious meals.

Working as a Senior Care Assistant for Abbeyfield you will ensure that services are provided that respect individual rights and choices while offering support, empathy, compassion and privacy.
