The Variety of Live-in Care Placements at Helping Hands
As one of the fast growing care companies in the UK there is always plenty of work for our Carers and placements can be very varied.
We have an increasing need for carers that already have experience in caring for customers with complex needs or inexperienced carers that have an ambition to support multiple-need customers. These placements are often with younger adults that may have an acquired injury such as a spinal injury or brain injury; we also look after many customers with MS, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s and Stroke; and we have many customers with advanced dementia. All of these customers need an excellent carer who is able to provide first-class care with confidence.
Helping Hands carers are thoroughly trained in all nursing-led complex care procedures where needed.
These might include:
• Intermittent catheterisation
• Peristeen – rectal irrigation
• Suppositories and digital stimulation for bowel management
• Bladder washout
• Urethral and Supra pubic catheter
• Cpap, BiPap and VPap ventilation
• Cough assist
• Diabetes blood sugar monitoring
• Stoma – ileostomy, colostomy, urostomy
• PEG inc bolus and continuous
• Insulin injections
Current complex care placements opportunities:
We are looking for a young British or Australian female Carer, with experience. You will need to be a confident driver and swimmer.
This is a brilliant placement to care for a lovely young adult with Cerebral Palsy.
It would be a 4 week on 4 week off rotation from the 30th March in St.Albans, Hertfordshire.
If you are interested in this placement please email: Monica Brozek Helping Hands Home Care.
We are looking for a male, experienced Carer who can drive. This is a great placement, with a lovely customer who has an acquired brain injury. Ideally we are looking for a Carer with ABI experience, this can include Stroke (this is not essential though).
You must have clear communication skills, as the customer does have difficulty with communication. The customer enjoys going out, going to the gym and travelling.
This placement would be a 6 day on, 8 day off rotation, plus a 2 day handover. The placement would start on the 22nd March.
The placement is in Richmond, Greater London.
