We are looking for excellent carers Cerrig yr Afon Nursing & Residential Home
Working in a nursing home Looking forward, the ageing population combined with a national nursing shortage will create an even greater demand for healthcare professionals. This means employment in a nursing home could very well be in your future. Nurses in nursing homes need a different skill set than nurses in a hospital. These specialised skills allow them to concentrate their care to the needs of their patients. Itís important to deliver quality care with compassion, dignity and respect as a patientís inability to see, hear, talk or move easily makes them particularly vulnerable Ė therefore itís equally important to have the right people to look after them.

Working in a nursing home means that you are able to bond with your patient, as invariably one gets attached to people - youíll see a range of indispositions which will broaden your knowledge, increase your skills and help you understand the nature of each patientís problem.

If you think you have what it takes to provide delivery of excellent care, Cerrig yr Afon are always looking for enthusiastic and compassionate Staff Nurses and Carers to be part of our friendly team. Elderly patients need our care now more than ever, so if you have an interest in launching a career in this area, why not get in touch with us, either through our recruitment page, or by talking to our Matron for further information.
