Health Care Assistant

  • Morpeth NE61, UK
  • Part-time
  • Date Advert Closes: 07 September 2022

Company Description

Here at Home Instead, we have a something called the Mum test. We only bring on people we would feel comfortable looking after our own parents and we treat our clients the way we would want our own parents to be cared for. We expect all of our health Care Assistants use this rule, with every client they visit.

Quality time is essential when it comes to providing outstanding care and building a real bond with clients, which is why we always make sure our Health Care Assistants visit our lovely clients for a minimum of one hour. We believe in a relationship-led approach, with clients paired with Heath Care Assistants based on personality and shared interests. 

These are just some of the reasons that we are the only home care company in Northumberland rated 'outstanding' by the Care Quality Commission.

Job Description

If you are looking to make a real difference in your local community and connect with older people in a meaningful, life changing way, we would love to hear from you. We have an exciting opportunity for a new Health Care Assistant to join our team in Morpeth and the surrounding areas.

We offer a range of contract options, from guaranteed hours, to zero hours if you would prefer to start with fewer visits, giving you the option to build up if you wish. 

No two visits are the same, daily tasks can range from:

·       Meal preparation and light house work

·       Accompanying your client to appointments

·       Companionship

Does this sound like the role for you?
