You:



You’re a compassionate, can-do person with experience supporting older people. You already have an interest in Health and Social Care. Now you’re ambitious to progress further.

About Care UK:



We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support 



Please note that this position is based in Hendon, Greater London and we are looking for suitable candidates within a commutable distance to NW4 3TH.

At Elmstead House, you can expect a warm welcome from our friendly and professional team.



Elmstead House is a welcoming care home in Hendon, Greater London. We work in partnership with Barnet CCG to provide personalised nursing and residential care for older people living with Alzheimer's, other forms of dementia or mental health needs.



Our team has specialist expertise in caring for individuals with the most complex care needs and we also offer sensitive and supportive end of life care.



Living at Elmstead House is about being and feeling part of a community. When a new resident arrives at the home, we put time and effort into helping them to settle and feel comfortable. Many members of our team have worked here for more than 10 years, so residents can be sure of a familiar face. Residents are able to move about the home as they wish and have the space to choose what they'd like to do.



A lot of the care we provide is on a one-to-one basis. And we’re always there for residents’ families too, by offering comforting support to anyone that needs it.
