Adults, Elderly, Dementia, General, Head / Brain Injuries, Palliative
One of the UK's leading healthcare organisations requires a dedicated Staff Nurse to work within one of their beautiful nursing homes in Ashford, Kent, . My nationwide client provides nursing services to the elderly with Dementia. You will have excellent clinical skills and a naturally caring approach.
In what is a tremendously diverse role, you'll lead, motivate and generally bring out the best within the team. Offering clinical guidance and training to your colleagues, you'll ensure they're equipped and inspired to deliver the very highest standards of care. The care starts with the detailed assessments you'll complete and the individualised plans you'll develop for each resident - ensuring that not only are their physical needs met, but their emotional well-being is supported and their social needs are too.
On a practical level, you'll ensure our working practices are safe and conform to all the relevant regulations and legislative standards. But like every member of the team, you'll know that providing great care means constantly looking beyond the established way of doing things for opportunities to do things even better.
