Erskine is keen to recruit Modern Apprentice Care Assistants who are committed to the care of older people to enable them to live as full, active and independent life as possible.
With the support and supervision of Senior Care Staff, you will provide personal care to residents, support them at mealtimes and escort them to activities such as physiotherapy classes or games in the Activities Room promoting independence, respect and dignity at all times.
