About The Role
As a Senior Carer at HC One, Kindness will be at the core of
everything you do. It touches upon every aspect of our Dementia,
Nursing, Residential and Specialist care homes. Every single person
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.
For you, that will mean planning and implementing the kind of care
that will give our residents a real sense of security, dignity and
independence. You will get to know our residents and their families –
helping to ensure we deliver truly personalised care plans.
Leading a team of carers, you will be responsible for maintaining the
highest standards of care and you'll be a real influence on the rest
of the team. Whether you are showing someone how to use a walking
frame, helping someone at the end of their life to eat a meal or
talking to a resident's family on the phone, you'll do so with a sense
of kindness, above anything else.
Assisting the Registered Nurse and Care Manager, you will be involved
in providing essential physical and mental stimulation through a range
of social and recreational activities, as well as administering medication
One of your key responsibilities is to maintain accurate records of
the job you do and build strong relationships with the rest of your team.

About You
Ideally, you'll have an S/NVQ2 Diploma in Health & Social Care, a
background in person centred care planning and knowledge of caring for
people with dementia. What's essential, though, are your brilliant,
positive energy and natural ability to get along with people. You'll
know what good record keeping looks like and be able to manage your
time effectively. And, whenever you communicate with a resident or
co-worker, you'll be truly considerate and kind.
Well, after all, it's just in your nature.
