WORKING WITH US
We recognise that our business depends on the competence and happiness of our healthcare staff. Communicare’s highly-trained nurses, HCAs and Social Care staff provide exceptional care to our clients in private homes, nursing homes, hospitals and our own care facilities across the country.
Communicare invests heavily in training and continuous professional development. We are committed to ensuring that our best and brightest have the opportunity to grow and progress with us.
We are always interested in hearing from healthcare professionals who share our values and would like to join our team.
Our Healthcare Staff
All of our nurses (RGN, RPN, RCN and RNID) are registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland, and hold current certification in Patient Moving and Handling, CPR/BLS, Children First and Adult Safeguarding. They have broad experience of working in acute settings, as well as in nursing home environments and within the community.
Communicare’s Healthcare Assistants (HCAs) hold – at a minimum – a FETAC/QQI Level 5 qualification in healthcare. Achieving this certification involves being trained and receiving practical experience in numerous areas of healthcare provision, including Patient Moving and Handling, CPR/BLS, Infection Prevention and Control, care of the elderly, personal hygiene, food hygiene, toileting and incontinence management, health and safety, fire safety, nutrition and communication. Our HCAs have also completed Children First training and, in some cases, training in the Safe Administration of Medication, specialised feeding and neurogenic bowel care.
We also employ CORU-registered Social Care Workers and a number of Social Care Assistants to deliver exceptional social care in our residential and respite facilities.
All of our healthcare staff members are Garda vetted.
