The Priory is a privately owned Care Home caring for 23 elderly residents. We are looking for motivated and flexible individuals to join our team, who are willing and able to take responsibility. Shifts are 7 or 8 hours and will require both weekday and weekend working. We are looking to fill 36-42 hrs.
The role is for a Senior Care Assistant. Suitability will be based upon experience, knowledge and NVQ/Diploma training achievements.
Our aim within The Priory is to care for residents in the same way and in the same environment that we would want for our own parents. It is so important that care homes become a real home, with all the feelings and emotions that we associate with the word, for the residents, their families and their supporters. The residents’ needs and wishes come first in a care home. We provide care and assistance where necessary and company or privacy as desired. We deliver this in an informal atmosphere, with care and thought at all times, ensuring that residents take an active part in making their own decisions.
Quality care can only be delivered with quality staff. At The Priory, we are rightly proud of the care team that work with us. Staff are chosen for their understanding and dedication, as well as their care skills. We work closely with each member of the team to maximise their full potential through continued training and assessment. This training has allowed our care to become attentive yet discrete, giving residents’ confidence and support throughout their stay with us. Each carer will work as part of a team providing personal care to our residents in line with their individual care plans. You will be required to work to the highest standards within the Home, with empathy and warmth towards those you care for.
An Enhanced DBS check and COVID vaccinations will be required.
