Octavia believes that good homes make for better lives.
Inspired by our founder, the social reformer Octavia Hill, we are a not-for-profit organisation providing thousands of people with good-quality affordable homes in inner London. Like her we believe in the power of well-planned, well-managed housing to make a difference. Flexibility is a key part of all of our care and support services as our focus is on the individual - helping people to stay as active and independent as possible.
The Senior Care Assistant will provide a responsive, respectful and reliable care and support service to vulnerable older people within a day service setting. You will provide support, care and activities to members involving family, carers and agencies to meet their changing needs. Additionally you will supervise care staff through observation and discussion, and monitor that the quality of care is appropriate to the needs of the individuals.
We are looking for people who have experience in the care, support and safeguarding of older and / or vulnerable people along with awareness of the various needs they may have. You will respect and practise the principles of dignity, privacy, independence, choice and fulfilment ensuring you keep up to date with all health, safety and legal requirements in this setting.
A level 2 diploma in Health & Social Care or equivalent is required and the role is subject to satisfactory DBS and reference checks.
