Care Assistant - Long Call

£10.00 - £10.50

Full or Part time hours, permanent contracts

Location: Ilkeston
Pay rate: £10.00 - £10.50 per hour

Cera are recruiting Female Care Assistants in Ilkeston. Although experience is advantageous, we can give you all the training you need to become a Professional Carer if you have the right compassion and attitude to delivering excellent care. If you can tick these boxes, then a care job with Cera might just tick yours.

We have a package of care which requires dedicated and committed care workers to become part of the team and deliver outstanding care. Applicants must be female, have a good understanding of the English language, access to their own vehicle with business insurance. This position would suit someone looking for part time work or school hours.

What's involved?
There are quite probably older, more vulnerable people living in your street. People who, with the right care, can still live safely and comfortably in their own homes. Staying at home is probably the one thing they want most and it's what our carers provide - by visiting them once or maybe several times a day.

Every client's needs are different. You will assist in carrying out the day to day individual care needs of the service user, including social outings, community access and help around the home, promoting dignity in care at all times. Aspects of this role also include monitoring of blood sugar levels and diabetes management. But more than this, our carers build a special bond, providing human company, encouragement and maybe a laugh or two, often when life has become a bit tough.

It's fair to say, there are sad times. We've been to a few funerals, and said many goodbyes. Caring isn't always easy, but a lot of families will be grateful that you did.

If caring sounds like your kind of job, then you're our kind of person.
