Introduction

I am looking for 2-4 new employees to join my care team and fill available shifts (The number of hires depends on how many shifts applicants want to work and whether they prefer part-time or full-time). You will work privately for me, with monthly pay organised via Enham Trust using Direct Payments.
No experience is necessary – all training will be provided during working hours, and paid at the usual rate.

Duties

  • You will work to assist me in my daily activities, so that I am able to access what I need and move around the house. I will always be communicating and instructing, and I will tell you everything that I need during the shift.
  • To give you an idea of what assistance is required during each shift, I have roughly outlined my usual routine below.
  • The night shift is a sleeping shift. It involves helping me getting ready for bed, personal care using a hoist, helping me relieve leg cramps during the night when they wake me up, and helping me get out of bed in the morning. There is a bedroom adjacent to mine where you can sleep and I will usually call a couple times per night for 5 mins of assistance.
  • An afternoon shift involves helping me use the toilet using a hoist, helping me adjust my seating position in my wheelchair, and helping me to do light housework and providing assistance preparing food.
  • A morning shift involves assistance with my physiotherapy exercises, helping me do housework, and occasionally preparing food.

Rate

  • £11.00 – £15.00 per hour
  • Mon-Fri Day Shift: £12 an hour
    Sat-Sun Day Shift: £13 an hour
    Night Shift £15 per hour
  • Paid holiday
  • Statutory sick pay is available for sick leave lasting a week or more.

Desirable

  • A full drivers license and a car. This is not required, but it can make it easier for you when traveling to my house for shorter shifts or to run errands for example. Free parking is available.
  • Based in the Plymouth area.
