Where you’ll work

 

We very much embrace our Scottish heritage, with accordion players, highland dancers and traditional storytellers among the many talents from the East Lothian area that come to the home. Traditional Scottish fare is at the heart of our regional menu, with classics including neeps and tatties, Scotch pie and haggis and stovies. For our residents who live with dementia, our nursing home has a very special addition to their technology, the ‘Magic Table’, which is a piece of sensory equipment created in the Netherlands. It uses light games projected onto a table to encourage residents to engage with each other. It’s a real joy to see residents, particularly those who may find verbal communication difficult, responding to the magical lights and sounds of the games.

 

Are you our next Care Assistant? Here’s more about the role:

 

First and foremost – we work together as a team to enrich our residents’ lives – let’s support our colleagues too and have fun in the process

We give the highest quality of personalised care to our residents in line with their individual care plans

Leisure and social activities are a really important part of the day – let’s get stuck in

It’s very simple – if we can be the best Care Assistant we can be by being kind and supportive in every way to our residents, their families and our colleagues, then we’re all doing a great job.

 

What skills do I need?

 

Team work! A happy team, makes for happy residents and a happy home

Experience is not essential, as we will support you with all the training and support you’ll need to do the job, what is important is that you are caring, enthusiastic and have energy to share

Being able to communicate well is essential along with a flexible approach

You’ll also be kind and have a real genuine like for older people and their needs, ensuring we treat everyone with the respect and dignity they deserve.

 

We hope you feel you could be our next team member.
