MEET A CARER
I was interviewed for a health care assistant job by the training manager who equally started off as a person with no experience in the sector like me. He believed in me and although I knew it was going to be a challenge having not worked in health and social care before I also knew it would bring me satisfaction knowing I had helped the most vulnerable in our society. Since being given the job over 1 year ago I’m still here and I thoroughly enjoy working with the clients and the team. I have been supported to achieve my QCF qualification in Health and Social Care for Adults and my Care Certificate. The knowledge I have gained means I am now equipped to support individuals better.current jobs
All members of our team are given a thorough induction and training in best practice dementia care, enabling them to embrace modern approaches to looking after individuals living with dementia. This includes face to face training on safeguarding, nutrition and handling.
As well as one week’s intensive training, all new staff are closely monitored and supported during their three month induction period, ensuring that they have the skills and support required to do the job to the best of their ability. All team members have a personalised career development plan. Put simply, this means they are offered guidance, support and training to ensure that they are able to progress their career and achieve relevant qualifications.
We strongly believe in professional development. In fact, in January 2019, two of our nurses joined a pioneering apprenticeship for Nursing Associates at Middlesex University. Currently employed as Trainee Nursing Associate Apprentices (TNAs), the programme will prepare them to meet national professional standards so that they will be fully qualified as Nursing Associates when they successfully complete the apprenticeship.
As a Registered Nurse at Priscilla Wakefield House, you’ll look after the physical, psychological and social needs of our residents to help us deliver the quality care they deserve.
We’ll look to you to create a safe and supportive environment for residents with range of physical and mental needs, whilst also relying on your professional judgement to make critical clinical decisions. You can expect a wide range of responsibilities, from developing tailored care plans to providing medicine safely and delivering excellence across everything you do. As a Registered Nurse you’ll have the autonomy to do things the right way – and be truly valued and respected for what you do.
You’ll need to have current NMC registration and a good knowledge of the most up-to-date clinical practices to join us as a Registered Nurse. Experience of producing well-developed care plans and detailed risk assessments is important too, as is an understanding of regulatory frameworks, including DoLs/MCA and Pharmaceutical guidelines. Dedicated and compassionate, you’ll pride yourself on your person-centred, thoughtful approach to nursing.
