Wycombe Home Care Assistant Jobs

The job description for a Care Assistant - Wycombe at Radfield Home Care is outlined below.

Our Home Care Assistants work with elderly people who live in their own homes and may need just a small amount of support e.g. help with shopping or companionship through to care visits with one or two carers several times per day.

Your care duties for each individual client will be clearly stated in their Care Plan and may vary depending on the client needs, time of day of the visit etc. Occasionally other care duties may arise that aren’t included below and you will need to be able to adapt easily to take on these different duties if asked.

There are certain qualities that we expect all our carers to have and bring to their day-to-day work and we have outlined these below.

 

Skills, Knowledge & Qualifications

Required:

The main skills and qualities that we look for in our Home Care Assistants are:

  • Physically able to cope with the demands of domiciliary care work which involves bending, lifting, stretching, kneeling, crouching, using small stepladders, walking, getting up and down stairs & manual dexterity.
  • Mentally able to cope with the demands of domiciliary care work which can be stressful and involve dealing with bereavement and challenging behaviour.
  • Able to work regular weekends either 4 sessions on alternate weekends or 2 sessions every weekend.
  • To participate in the standby carer rota.
  • Self-motivated, organised and flexible.

Main Responsibilities:

  • To share with other staff in meeting the personal care needs of our clients in a way that respects their dignity and promotes independence. The nature of care we expect you to provide is similar to that which would reasonably be given by members of the client’s own family and will not involve tasks that a trained nurse would normally provide.

  • To help clients with mobility problems and other physical disabilities including incontinence to use and look after aids and personal equipment.

  • To assist with washing clothes and ironing if requested.
  • To prepare and serve meals; assist clients with eating and drinking; wash up, tidy and clean the kitchen and dining area.

After a short career break to have her first child, Caroline moved to England and started a new role as a carer in a dementia residential home. There, Caroline quickly progressed her career as a carer to a senior care role, then to Deputy Manager.

Caroline explains, “My first experience with Radfield Home Care was back in 2016 when my husband’s Grandmother was being cared for at her home in Worcester. The feeling from the whole family was that the support, care and professionalism shown by the carers was second to none. When the opportunity arose for me to join the Radfield Home Care family I knew that I was joining an organisation whose core values meet my own personal values.”

As care manager, Caroline works closely with the care team to provide outstanding care at home to Radfield Home Care clients, ensuring that the highest standards are met, continuing to go above and beyond to make a positive difference to their lives.
