Being a Senior Care Assistant at Care UK
Senior Care Assistants at Care UK are already used to caring for others. They’re passionate about what they do, flexible in their approach and great at building a rapport with everyone they deal with. They inspire professionalism. They cope with difficult situations using tact and diplomacy and take responsibility for resolving them. They enjoy collaborating with others and sharing information and ideas. They raise standards through innovation. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you have the same sort of attributes? Then we could have just the role for you.
What you’ll be doing
Being a Senior Care Assistant isn’t just about providing leadership and support for a care team. It’s about acting as a role model for good practice and a champion for residents’ dignity and safety. It’s about regularly assessing, monitoring and reviewing day-to-day processes and coming up with improvements where required. And, it's about ensuring that clear and accurate records and communication systems relating to clinical and care delivery are properly maintained and effectively used. Put simply, it’s about making a difference. A real difference.
What you’ll need
An NVQ and relevant experience is essential, including a good understanding of care planning processes and a proven ability to write concise care plans. We’ll also be looking for individuals who are well-organised, with excellent supervisory skills and used to planning, allocating and delegating work appropriately. What's more, you have experience of contributing to, monitoring and implementing changes that improve outcomes for residents. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.The benefits

The Willows care home offers quality care in a warm, relaxed and homely atmosphere.
The Willows is a modern, purpose-built care home set in a quiet residential area of Middlesbrough and is sometimes known locally as Woodside Resource Centre. We offer specialist nursing, residential, respite and day care for older people who have Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia.
We also offer a flexible day care service to older people living in the area who have dementia, as well as compassionate and supportive end of life care.
We work hard to make sure residents feel comfortable, settled and happy. Our team at The Willows spend time getting to know residents so that we can provide personalised care and offer the food and activities they like most.
We encourage residents to stay active and there’s something for everyone with regular outings, visits from professional entertainers and activities such as painting, memory games and card making. We even have a ‘wandering pathway’ within the home, so that residents with dementia are able to explore freely. You can learn more about daily life at The Willows here.
