For you, that will mean delivering a level of care that truly comes from the heart. It’s about making sure our 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 wellbeing in mind above anything else.
Ideally, you’ll have an S/NVQ2 Diploma in Health & Social Care, a background in person centred care planning and knowledge of caring for people with dementia. What’s essential, though, are your brilliant, positive energy and natural ability to get along with people. You’ll know what good record keeping looks like and be able to manage your time effectively. And, whenever you communicate with a resident or co-worker, you’ll be truly considerate and kind.
Well, after all, it’s just in your nature.
