We’re Mariposa Care Group, a residential and nursing care service and we provide a range of care and support services for residents. Everyone who works here understands that our residents are people just like them with their own stories to tell. And, by joining us, you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to give something back to those people.
Our main priority for this job role is to find people with the right values, behaviours and attitudes that match our own! We’re seeking to recruit a kind-hearted senior care assistant who has the required experience, along with the appropriate Level 3 qualifications, or working towards them, but also the right values and behaviours to work in our residential care service – could this be you?
Above all we want someone that shares in our values, these being:
Duties of a Senior Care Assistant are varied, and no two days will be the same. All our residents are individuals and they deserve to be treated as such. However, as a general guide, duties may include providing, overseeing and supervising and monitoring daily routines to ensure consistent high standards of resident care is achieved. Support senior staff, where appropriate, to carry out their clinical responsibilities for residents and assist with administration of medication in accordance with medication procedures. Last but not least uphold public trust and confidence and be accountable for the quality of your work and take responsibility for maintaining and improving your knowledge and skills.
