Complex Care Healthcare Assistant Days and Twilight Shifts for an adult in Exeter

Ocean Healthcare are looking for an experienced Female Healthcare Assistant to support a young woman in Exeter. She was sadly involved in a road accident in which she sustained a high-level spinal cord injury resulting in quadriplegia. She now requires 24/7 care.

She enjoys spending time with her daughter, having her hair, make up and nails done. Enjoys watching reality tv and using her laptop. Dislikes routine being changed and preferably will only have female carers who around her age (33). Likes to go out and likes carers who can drive.

Our lovely service user lives in an adapted bungalow with a family member, providing 24-hour support, and her pet cat. She requires pain management and bowel care as well as all other aspects of personal care. Experience with AD (Autonomic Dysreflexia) would be a real advantage but not essential. Care involves going out in an adapted car so being able to drive would be helpful.

You will need to be patient and caring and enjoy supporting people to enjoy their best life. Please feel free to give us a call on 01803 470025 if you’d like to know more or Click Apply anywhere on this page and we’ll be in touch.
