Make a difference every day – Become a Support Worker.

Nothing compares to the feeling that comes from knowing that you’ve brightened up someone’s day – especially when that someone is a vulnerable adult. SCP Complex Care are recruiting for experienced support workers to work with a 7 year old female client in Hythe (CT21) with Chromosome disorder, Profoundly deaf, Epilepsy

Our client is non verbal, she is a poor sleeper and wakes regularly through the night.  She can have apnoeic episodes and myoclonic jerks which can cause her to wake up. 

Support workers will be required to complete hourly observations.

The shifts will be waking night shifts 9:30pm – 7:30am
