Posted 29 January by Newcross Healthcare

We are looking for experienced Care Assistants (HCAs) to uphold our philosophies and provide the highest standard of care in the local Isle of Wight area, supporting service users in their day-to-day lives.

You will play an essential role in enabling our service users to live fulfilling lives, engaging in their favourite activities and interacting with their families, visitors and other residents.

You will be working in local residential and nursing homes on the Isle of Wight, so previous experience working with dementia and/or the elderly is highly desirable.
