Eastbury House is a Residential Home in Sherborne for 20 elderly residents.

We are looking for weekend carers – alternate weekends of 7/8 hour shifts.

What is Eastbury House like – we are frequently told that we are different!

Where elderly people live their lives in the way they choose – eating what they like when they like where they like. We are described as ‘homely’, non-institutional – so we don’t wear uniforms or have a big ‘elderly’ sign at the door – where you choose your own coffee/tea/wine/gin… where there are dogs and often children, fun outings and Pimms in the garden.

So, if you are still reading this and haven’t fallen asleep or turned over the page, this is where we need people who equally want to care for the elderly in this way – are perhaps as slightly eccentric as I am often accused of being – incorrectly of course – people who can spread joy and laughter – can stem the tears – listen with patience & care and work with love.

You do paid and fed!
