About Candidate

Since beginning in the role as a carer in care environment, I have consolidated my learning from early days as carer and have become confident in completing my duties in this role. I have the ability to complete day to day tasks without issue and have become increasingly more competent in managing more challenging situations that arise in care environment. I wish to continue developing my knowledge and understanding of mental health conditions and develop my skills in helping people cope with such conditions and aid them in their personal recovery. I enjoy working as part of a team and have a good understanding of individuals roles on the ward. I have regularly participated in daily management meetings where tasks relating to residence care are prioritised an allocated. During residence reviews I contribute a nursing assessment of mental state and the recovery progress. I have advocated for residents to ensure their dignity and rights are upheld. When allocated as carer in charge of shifts, I have taken on this responsibility with no issues. When I have been carrying out this role I have been able to ensure the smooth running of the home and supporting staff to complete their tasks to a good standard. I am able to manage my own caseload of residents. I can assess their ability to cope with daily living and offering assistance where needed whilst also promoting independence and autonomy. I hope to gain more experience so that I can increase my responsibilities and progress in my career in the future. I have experience of providing a variety of interventions. Over the past year I have engaged service users in talking therapies using aspects of cognitive behavioural therapy for eating disorders as part of a secondment role as eating disorder specialist. This skill has been transferable and I have been able to use this with residents within the care environment. I have experience of completing referrals to other services but have also participated in referral meetings to discuss the appropriateness of referrals and prioritising them appropriately on a waiting list. In my current place of work I have been required to work a variety of shifts including 7-19, 19-7, night shifts and some long days. I have managed to adapt my work-life balance well to all types of shifts and have enjoyed this variety. I have gained experience in information sharing through daily huddles discussing staffing and other issues as well as care based handovers of care issues and residient updates. i have good skills in record keeping and communicating with fellow professionals. I feel confident in building rapport with residients, families and carers and establishing therapeutic relationships followed by appropriate endings through discharge planning.
