‘It is a privilege to enter a home and support a patient and their loved ones’

We are recruiting Senior Healthcare Assistants (SHCAs) to our expanding Hospice at Home Team to enable us to provide care for more patients and families. As a team we support people in the last 2 weeks of life who want to spend those weeks in their own homes, with their families and friends.

Hospice at Home are passionate about providing the highest quality of care and support to a patient and their loved ones, could you be someone that also has that aim? Our SHCAs work as part of a caring, inclusive, and supportive team who have the same passion and compassion which gives you the confidence to go into people’s homes and go that extra mile to support both the patient and their loved ones at a difficult and precious time.

You would need to have significant experience in caring and have a QCF level 3 in Health and Social Care or the equivalent and be passionate about providing good quality palliative care to people in their own homes. You would need to have excellent communication skills, work well on your own but also within a very supportive team.

We provide free parking on site, free uniforms, freshly cooked meals available on site, excellent induction, meaningful appraisals and the encouragement to develop your skills and progress your career if you wish.

You would be working shifts to cover 7 days a week.

Night shifts are 22.00- 07.00

Day shifts are Early 07.00-14.30 and Late 14.30-22.00
