Do you really want to make a difference? Do you want to help patients remain living independently in their own homes? If so this is the job for you.

You will be working alongside registered nursing staff delivering care to people in their own homes. You need to be a good communicator, have a caring and compassionate nature, work well as part of a team and be calm in a crisis. Experience of working with older people would be beneficial.
Good communication skills both written and verbal are essential. You will be required to maintain a working relationship with a range of other professionals within the Multi Disciplinary Team.
Good IT skills are essential. There is a wide variety of training available and protected time within working hours is given to attend.
As you will be visiting patients in their own homes you must be able to travel around the Trust in a timely manner.
