Closely partnering with our discharge coordinators, you will ensure that admissions and discharges are seamless, and all clinical assessments are completed within 24 hours of referrals, to minimise bed blocking within local hospitals. In particular, you will make certain that referred patients are suitable for our rehabilitation programme and ensure that colleagues at the homes are fully briefed on their needs. At the same time, you will oversee the implementation of care plans, making certain that we deliver the highest standards of clinical support and outstanding patient-centred services.
Skills & Experience
Experienced in continual assessment within hospital and care settings, you will be fully familiar with nursing tools such as Waterlow and MUST. You will be skilled in writing care plans, capable of supervising colleagues and ready to reshape working practices. Finally, familiarity with dementia care would be beneficial, as would a background within a rehabilitation and step down facility.
Are you an NMC Registered Nurse with experience of working with older people? Do you share our passion for transforming lives? Then you can play a central part in the management of two homes for one of Britain’s leaders in care services.
- Where you'll work
At Oak House, we offer a warm welcome together with high quality care for older people.
Set in a peaceful residential area of Slough, Oak House is a modern, purpose-built care home that opened in 2009. We provide personalised nursing, residential, and care to older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also offer sensitive and supportive end of life care.
We place great importance on supporting residents to be as active and independent as possible. So we spend lots of time getting to know each person, so that we can offer engaging and fulfilling activities based on their interests. We love to see residents getting involved in our different clubs, keeping up with their old hobbies and trying out new things.
Our friendly team also enjoys building good relationships with residents' loved ones, who often come to think of us as part of their extended family. Everyone shares the same goal of making sure residents are happy, comfortable and settled.
Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
