Deewater Grange on Chester Road in Huntington opens in winter 2019 and  will provide an extensive range of quality care services, including residential and nursing care, short term respite care plus specialist dementia care. At Care UK, we believe in supporting residents to live fulfilling lives and supporting residents to continue doing the things they enjoy. We’ll have our own cinema, coffee shop and hair and beauty salon to enable residents to continue enjoying a great lifestyle. The only difference is that expert care will be on hand 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

 

You

You’re a caring person with a can-do attitude. You already have experience supporting older people, ideally including those with dementia. You’ve got the confidence to lead a care team and act as champion for the safety and dignity of residents. You have a good understanding of care planning with a Level 3 vocational qualification in Health and Social Care (either a diploma or NVQ). To you, caring is more than just a job. It’s a chance to use your compassion and skills – to make a real difference. To help you succeed, we’ll give you excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities.

 

Your role

As a key member of the care team, you’ll put residents at the heart of everything we do. You’ll be happy to go the extra mile to make sure individual residents receive high quality care in a safe, dignified way. You’ll lead by example, supporting and inspiring your team to deliver the very best standards of care. And you’ll liaise with GPs and other healthcare professionals to ensure residents get the medical care they need. As part of a close-knit, friendly team, you’ll use your initiative and talent to contribute to the success of the home. In return, we’ll help you build a successful career.
