Care Team Member - Forget Me Not Children's Hospice
KIRKLEES COUNCIL ARE ADVERTISING THIS ROLE ON BEHALF OF FORGET ME NOT CHILDREN'S HOSPICE
When time is short, every moment counts. So when children with life-shortening conditions spend time with us, whether that’s at our hospice, in their own homes or out in the community, we want every minute to be meaningful.
And that’s where you come in...
As a care team member, you’ll provide the majority of care to one child over the course of each shift, with the support of our nursing team.
With the freedom to design your day around the needs and wants of the child in your care, your role will be to engage them in play and learning activities, making sure they’re always happy and safe. That might mean spending time in our sensory room, cinema or even our hydrotherapy pool. Or you might go on a day trip together.
You’ll also provide essential care, like feeding, bathing, toileting and moving and handling as well as care tasks specific to individual children. But don’t worry, during your probationary period, we’ll provide all the training you need to provide safe and effective care to children with complex needs.
Some experience of working with children – perhaps in early years, in education or healthcare - is essential but you don’t need to have worked in a hospice before. What’s more important is that you bring a caring, friendly and playful attitude, that you love engaging with children and you’re good at building rapport with them and their families.
Adaptable and resilient, you’ll be open to learning new skills and to helping these very special children to live the best lives they can.
If that sounds like you, and you’re looking for a role where you’ll see the difference you make every single day, then please apply now!
