What Is Bank Healthcare Assistance?

If you are currently in a position that doesn’t fulfil you and you’re looking for a flexible role, why not consider working in bank healthcare assistance with Helping Hands? If you have existing commitments that mean you’re not available for full-time or regular hours, working as a bank care assistant could give you the flexibility that you need.

Bank Care Assistant Job Description

Working as a care assistant with us will mean you’ll support our incredible customers to live as independently as possible in the home they love. Our customers live with various conditions, such as dementia, Parkinson’s, and learning disabilities. We also offer palliative and end-of-life care, meaning that we have plenty of experience with delivering just what people need to continue living at home. Our healthcare assistants can be involved in every aspect of a customer’s routine, whether recovering from a temporary illness or living with a life-limiting condition, such as medication administration, personal care, housework, and more.

Healthcare Bank Jobs with Helping Hands

We offer roles on both a visiting and live-in care basis across England and Wales, and we currently have over 160 local care branches. If you only have a few weeks at a time that you can work throughout the year, then live-in care might fit in with your commitments, whereas if you have obligations that limit your weekly hours, you may be suited to visiting care.
