Are you someone that has a genuine desire to help people? Do you demonstrate compassion, empathy, dignity and respect in your approach?

If this is you, please take the time to read on because we may have the right role for you.

Prestige Nursing + Care are looking for compassionate, driven individuals who ideally have a background supporting people with complex health needs and have a minimum of 6 months experience. We are looking for new people to join a highly trained team of Care Workers, supporting a lady in her own home. Your role would be to deliver a quality of care that is second to none, whilst also ensuring that her emotional needs are met with stimulating activities and interaction.

This person lives with her family locally and has cerebral palsy, learning disabilities, diabetes, dislocated hips, dysphasia and is non-verbal.

Clinical health interventions include:

PEG, Suction, Complex Moving & Handling needs and Medication Administration through PEG and rectal medication.

Training for all of these interventions would be provided. Our standard training programme would be required initially which comprises of 7 e-learning modules and a 3 day practical induction. Following this you would also have to attend complex care training with our Branch Nurse, and shadow shifts to learn about the individual herself. Then when we have confirmation that you are ready, you would be signed off as competent and able to work alone. This would not be done until you are ready, the family are happy and our Branch Nurse deems you competent in delivering her care.

We are looking for day and night workers to join our team. Shifts are 0800-1900hrs and 2000-0800hrs. Ideally we like staff to cover approximately one or two shifts per week so that they are flexible then to also help with annual leave and sickness cover whilst maintaining their skills and the service users routine. This would be on a zero hours contract but once your shifts are agreed, they would be yours to cover every week. You are welcome to book holidays around the others though.

We also care for other people with complex health needs and would happily consider using the right candidates for more than one package of care - if someone wanted more hours.

Please feel free to call us for an informal chat. We are looking for the right people and therefore if you have any questions you want to ask, please ask them before applying.

We pride ourselves in supporting our staff and promise to do our very best to look after you. We value each and every individual that works for us - as well as each individual that we support. Every client has their own individual needs and by the same token, every member of staff is different. We take pride that the members of our team are valued and looked after, alongside our clients.

If you have got far enough to read this last paragraph and find yourself smiling and thinking that you are the right person then don't just think about calling us, please do it right now! This is really rewarding role for the right person, where you can truly make a difference to someone's life. If you are that caring, motivated person who isn't vexed by health complexities, then you really are the person we are looking for!
