Care Assistant - Days
BECOME PART OF OUR FAMILY
At Springfield Healthcare, we like to think of ourselves as one big family. From the residents we care for to every member of our team, our social care heroes. We've been providing exceptional care in beautiful residential settings for over 50 years - and with a growing portfolio of care homes and care villages, we're looking for an outstanding care assistant to join us.
About the Role
Reporting in to the person in charge, our care assistants are the heart of our homes. By helping us deliver the highest quality care, you will enhance every day for our residents. And like us, you will always want to do the best you can and constantly look for ways to improve. You will: • Assist our residents by providing a high standard of person centred care, promoting independence where appropriate • Serve food and drinks, and follow dietary requirements as per care plans • Carry out regular checks on residents • Answer call bells as quickly as possible and give residents the support, assistance and comfort they may require • Follow care plans, write detailed progress notes and complete a comprehensive handover with oncoming staff • Attend training courses and information sessions to maintain your professional skills
Naturally, you're a caring person, and the kind who notices the little things that make a big difference to other people. You’re a really good listener as well as someone who can happily make conversation with all kinds of people. Your kind spirit and compassion for others is part of your DNA. We can help with training on specific skills. You're a team player who is outstanding in your own field with bucket loads of respect for your colleagues.
Our homes provide exceptional, kind and compassionate care in beautiful surroundings, in the heart of communities. We offer an impressive choice of care services for a wide range of age groups, with modern nursing, residential and dementia care and support, as well as respite breaks within the majority of our homes. All our bedrooms are en-suite and tastefully decorated. Our dining rooms and restaurants serve delicious and nutritionally balanced, award winning meals. Our activities programmes are exceptional and tailored to our residents from walking clubs, to round the world themed days, technology based fun or baking. We also use the sparkles scheme to ensure even the most unusual hobbies can be supported. The skills and experience of our team members means that we can offer homes that are beautiful to live in, operated professionally, and provide very high standards of care. Springfield Healthcare Group was founded by our CEO, Graeme Lee. Graeme grew up in our Garforth Care Home, which was owned and run by his parents. Since taking the reins in 1994 the company has grown substantially and always with our residents at the heart of every decision.
