Night Care Assistant


From  £11.00-£11.65 per hour - 33 hours per week

Job Description

Night Care Assistants do not see the residents at their full potential. Residents may be tired, exhausted and confused in the morning and evening. However, night care assistants are crucial in ensuring that residents care is maintained. A resident who is distressed, or confused at night may be at their most vulnerable and without high quality care and attention, they will be exhausted during the day. They will have no quality of life.

Night Care Assistants see a side of residents that few health care professionals see. They have an incredibly important role in ensuring that the health of residents does not decline. The more vulnerable a resident is, the more important the Night Care Assistant’s role.
