This is where the health care assistant (HCA) comes in to provide that pivotal support so that residents can continue living their lives. As the HCAs work in close contact with our residents, they act as that important bridge to bring our residents closer to the feeling of being able to lead a normal life.

Key Roles and Responsibilities:

(9) Night Health Care Assistant (for Dusk-to-Dawn – an overnight respite service for caregivers of persons with dementia) 

Persons with dementia can experience ‘sundowning’ – where they get confused, anxious and agitated toward late afternoon and evening. This disrupts the sleep of their caregivers. Dusk-to-Dawn (DTD) is a night respite service for caregivers of persons with dementia. While the resident is with us, the caregiver gets a good night’s rest and can continue providing care to this resident the next day.

When residents are unable to fall asleep in the night, customised activities are planned for them. This is where the night HCA comes in to engage DTD residents in activities or in conversation. More importantly, the night HCA cultivates meaningful relationships with our DTD residents, helping them build a home away from home.

Key Roles and Responsibilities

– Station at the DTD programme centre

– Accompany seniors and encourage them to participate in an array of activities, specially tailored to their needs from 11.00 pm to 8.00 am.

– Documentation of residents’ care preferences (including sleeping habits, food and activity preferences)

Qualifications:

– NITEC/N/O level or Certificate in Healthcare/Homecare Support

– Able to converse in at least one dialect

– Comfortable caring for female residents

– Minimum 1 year of relevant work experience in caring for elderly persons

– Work hours per week: 44 hours from 11.00 pm to 8.00 am for 5 nights, Mon to Fri

– Job trial of 3 to 5 nights will be arranged for selected candidate

Compensation:

– Minimum salary from $1850 and upwards, to be commensurate with relevant qualifications and experience

– Additional Night allowance of $10.00 per night worked

 

For all the above roles, the following are also required: 

–         You need to be a patient person with seniors and are passionate about championing better eldercare

–          You’re equally at home with working in a team as you are on your own

–          You understand the need to care not only for the physical health of our residents but of their emotional health and general well-being
