Extraordinary lives. Outstanding people.
The life of every resident we proudly care for is extraordinary, rich in history and unique life stories. We are Caring Homes, one of the UK’s leading providers of nursing, residential and dementia care. We have 69 homes in beautiful locations nationwide and we’re still growing. And we know that genuine care is delivered by passionate people who go above and beyond to help every resident live life to the full.
As a Healthcare Assistant, you’ll play such an important role in the everyday activities and needs of the residents you’ll bond with. Working as part of one team of nursing and care professionals, you’ll understand what matters to every resident, so you can tailor the way you care for them. Helping them live as independently as possible. If you have experience in care, or if you’d like to put your people skills to better use, you’ll find a warm welcome and the opportunity for a great career here.
About the role
Every resident, and their families, need people caring for them who genuinely want the best for them. So, whether you’re going for a walk, changing a bed, monitoring their food and fluid intake, or listening to their life experience, the connections you build will make their life better. And make your work more meaningful. This is a role that focuses on dignity through determined effort. It’s a role that makes a difference to residents’ lives and a work more worthwhile. And it’s a role that is backed up by investment in training that is second to none.
The skills you’ll need
People skills, attention to detail, respect for the past and hopes for the future. These are the qualities we look for in every Healthcare Assistant. You’ll bring a ‘one team’ attitude that means you’ll be happy to share the responsibility with your teammates. And you’ll bring an appetite for learning that will open doors to future opportunities with the support of your managers and colleagues.
Above and beyond
If you share a passion for going above and beyond for people who need a bit of extra care and attention, or for people who need much more, you’ll be warmly welcomed to the team. And if you want to develop a career in a business that will go above and beyond for you, your future career in care is here. And as a business that specialises in dementia care, everyone who works here is offered our award-winning dementia training.
