Job description

Are you an experienced Support Worker looking for a new opportunity?

Apollo Home Healthcare is looking for dedicated and compassionate Support Workers who are passionate about their job, enjoy delivering one to one care and who can build positive relationships with our service users and their families.

Our service user lives with her partner in Stafford and requires care on a part-time basis.

She is a lovely lady with a fantastic sense of humour and is looking for like minded individuals to join her team.

Social based activities are a big part of this role as she enjoys visiting the zoo, going to the cinema, going out for meals, and attending music concerts. She is a big fan of Pink and Ed Sheeran.

She has no mobility and is unable to communicate verbally meaning she is dependent on her care team to meet her personal care needs and carry out careful moving and handling.

She communicates via the use of an electronic talker, typing what she would like to say.

It is important that she feels comfortable around her team and she is looking for people who have a similar sense of humour, who she can share a laugh and a joke with and do not take themselves too seriously.

Please note, drivers are required for day shifts to support accessing the community.

Essential Experience Required

  • 3 months previous care experience
  • Medication Administration
  • Personal Care
  • Moving and Handling
  • UK Driving Licence

Desirable Experience

  • Knowledge of Cerebral Palsy
  • Knowledge of Dystonia

We have the following shifts available;

  • Full Time & Part Time
  • Nights - 8pm - 8am
  • Includes alternate weekends

This is a personally rewarding role where you can build on your clinical skills and experience, whilst delivering exceptional care and support to our service user and really making an impact on her day-to-day life.
