job description

Are you a caring, passionate and dedicated Care Assistant with experience in a Challenging behaviours setting?

We are currently looking for experienced Care Assistants to work in a challenging behaviours setting in the Newcastle area. The Nursing home has capacity for 15 residents with mental health needs and challenging behaviours.

As a carer under the guidance of a Registered Nurse, taking responsibility for the physical and emotional well being and social needs of our residents. Assisting residents with personal care activities such as washing, personal hygiene, dressing and assisting with meals.

Delivering a level of care that truly comes from the heart. It's about making sure the residents never lose their dignity or sense of individuality as you get involved in general activities within the care home. And, whether you're helping someone with limited mobility to learn to use an aid, offering emotional support to a confused or distressed resident or delivering care to someone at the end of their life, you'll always have their well-being in mind above anything else.

Requirements for the post:



* Ideally you will have a NVQ level 2 in Health and Social Care but this is not a necessity
* Experience with mental health and challenging behaviours
* Be available for a minimum of 1 day per week
* Be able to work 8am-8pm or 8pm-8am (full shift)

Benefits of working through Randstad:



* Referral vouchers for up to £300
* Free Uniform
* Reduced DBS rates
* Free Cv writing and formatting
* One dedicated consultant and point of contact
