Senior Care Assistant in Marbury house
Fast paced, lots of admin
As a senior carer, you do medication rounds, personal care, booking in and out of residents, audits, booking in and out of medication. You run the staff team, staff inductions, supervisions etc. Day to day you deal with emergencies - falls, illness etc. Every day is different.
You have an extra day off for your birthday, but bank holidays - Christmas etc were kept on rota, so if you are unlucky you get to work them all.
Management team friendly, and keep quality of work and standards of care high. Sometimes we have quite a few residents who need lots of support, which puts pressure on the staff to ensure they are all up at a reasonable time, and all tasks are completed, but then as they improve, we may then have lots of more independent residents, waiting for equipment / care package for a safe return home.
Great induction, class based and online courses. Friendly staff. Potential to learn from NHS staff, and learning about different injuries and conditions.
3 full on twelve hour shifts, and then three days off on a rolling rota. Day seniors do most of the paperwork, night senior jobs were more hands on, unlike other care homes I have worked in, so late admissions meant late finishes for day staff. It can be hard work to keep on top of setting up care plans when there are multiple admissions and discharges in a day.
Sometimes it feels like there are more cleaning and catering staff than carers. Infection control is vital, but at times an extra pair of hands is needed on care.
