Job description

About The Role
 
HC-One is one step closer to bringing a new care home to York.

Mossdale Residence is due to open later this year and will be the first purpose-built HC-One provision in the city of York. A state of the art, luxury care home located in the popular residential area of Burnholme providing high quality residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 80 elderly people. Offering a range of hotel-style facilities located on the ground floor including a cinema room, bar, hair and beauty salon, hobby and crafts room, a beautiful landscaped central courtyard garden, and a range of lounge, dining and outdoor terrace spaces throughout. Residents will be able to experience the highest quality residential, nursing and dementia care delivered by HC-One, an organisation with a 96% satisfaction rating from Residents and families.

As a Senior Carer at HC One, Kindness will be at the core of everything you do. It touches upon every aspect of our Dementia, Nursing, Residential and Specialist care homes. Every single person who works here understands that our residents are people just like them with their own stories to tell. And, by joining us, you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to give something back to those people.

For you, that will mean planning and implementing the kind of care that will give our residents a real sense of security, dignity and independence. You will get to know our residents and their families – helping to ensure we deliver truly personalised care plans.

Leading a team of carers, you will be responsible for maintaining the highest standards of care and you’ll be a real influence on the rest of the team. Whether you are showing someone how to use a walking frame, helping someone at the end of their life to eat a meal or talking to a resident’s family on the phone, you’ll do so with a sense of kindness, above anything else.

Supporting the Manager as we launch the home and build up the team, you will be involved in providing essential physical and mental stimulation through a range of social and recreational activities, as well as administering medication.

One of your key responsibilities is to maintain accurate records of the job you do and build strong relationships with the rest of your team.

 

About You
Ideally, you’ll have an S/NVQ 2 or 3 Diploma in Health & Social Care, a background in person centred care planning and knowledge of caring for people with dementia. What’s essential, though, is 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 colleague, you’ll be truly considerate and kind.  
 
Well, after all, it’s just in your nature.
