Life is not made up of minutes, hours, days, weeks, months or years, but of moments. We believe an ethos of kindness and genuine caring ensures these moments are made happier and our difficult journeys easier. As a Nurse, you’ll know all too well how much this means to our Residents and their family, these simple acts of kindness cost nothing but make the biggest difference.
COULD YOU BE THE HEART OF OUR ORGANISATION?
Communication skills are very much the ‘core’ requirement of our Nurses, as they need to have open dialogue with Residents and their families so they fully understand their condition, medication and any other clinical concerns.
Ultimately, our Nurses do everything in their power to ensure our Residents lead rich and fulfilling lives.
Flexibility is a necessity, no two days are the same and that’s probably one of the things you love about the role. Last minute changes constantly keep our Nurses on their toes while they juggle workloads, paperwork, professional colleagues, Residents and their families.
A career in Nursing isn’t for everyone. And in this area, it can certainly be demanding. But looking after older people, improving the quality of their care and wellbeing, being passionate about what you do and your job, whilst mentoring others in our Homes, means being rewarded in many, many different ways.
ABOUT THE ROLE
Our Nurses report directly into Home Managers, ensuring we achieve the highest standards of care possible. They spread the happiness and make our Residents feel safe, secure and above all loved. Our Nurses live by our culture and values, they make sure our Resident’s Care Plan includes the Residents choices and that these needs are communicated to the wider HC-One family. They keep the lines of communication open between GP’s, other health and social care professionals, colleagues, Residents and their families to ensure the health and social care needs are met and understood. They are compliant with National Care Standards, Regulations, codes of practice, legal and company requirements so that we provide a safe service to our Residents.

A background in care environments
