Role Care Assistant
Closing date 31/07/2018

Exciting opportunities have arisen for a number of permanent Care Assistant vacancies at specialist residential and nursing homes based in West Bridgford, Cotgrave and Radcliffe on Trent.

Churchfarm Skylarks (West Bridgford), Church Farm Nursing home (Cotgrave) and Field House Nursing home (Radcliffe on Trent) are looking to recruit a number of Care Assistants and Care Co-ordinators to work in their specialist Dementia homes.

Purpose of the role - To be part of the support team, whose aims are to ensure that people’s nursing, personal and psychological needs are met on a daily basis. To help promote as much personal and physical independence and choice as possible in the activities of daily living with the people living in the Nursing Home. To help maintain a stimulating and attractive environment.

 At Church Farm, people who work here do not wear uniforms, there are no drug trolleys, staff toilets, large dining rooms and other institutional features. People are not seen as residents but as family.

 Task orientation, standing around watching people eat, and ‘doing to’ people have no place in this model of care.

 Instead, you will see people living and working together come alive sharing their histories, eating, laughing, and supporting each other to recall who they were. Helping people to be reached and connected to whoever they now need to be.

 “Feeling you matter is at the core of being a person. Knowing you matter is at the heart of being alive. Seeing you matter is at the centre of carrying on in life. Church Farm have proven that people living with a dementia really matter most.” Dr. David Sheard, Founder Dementia Care Matters
