  • Key Responsibilities 

    Closely partnering with our discharge coordinators, you will ensure that admissions and discharges are seamless, and all clinical assessments are  completed within 24 hours of referrals, to minimise bed blocking within local hospitals. In particular, you will make certain that referred patients are suitable for our rehabilitation programme and ensure that colleagues at the homes are fully briefed on their needs. At the same time, you will oversee the implementation of care plans, making certain that we deliver the highest standards of clinical support and outstanding patient-centred services.

    Skills & Experience 

    Experienced in continual assessment within hospital and care settings, you will be fully familiar with nursing tools such as Waterlow and MUST. You will be skilled in writing care plans, capable of supervising colleagues and ready to reshape working practices. Finally, familiarity with dementia care would be beneficial, as would a background within a rehabilitation and step down facility.

    Qualifications

    Are you an NMC Registered Nurse with experience of working with older people? Do you share our passion for transforming lives? Then you can play a central part in the management of two homes for one of Britain’s leaders in care services.

  • Where you'll work
  • Farm Lane is a modern and very welcoming purpose-designed care home in Fulham, south west London.

    Our experienced team provides person-centred residential, nursing, respite care for older people. We also offer sensitive and supportive end of life care.

    We involve residents and families at every step of the care planning journey, from creating individualised programmes to discussing any decisions that need to be made. The home has a calm and friendly atmosphere which helps people to feel settled very quickly. Many residents have lived in Fulham for a long time and we support each person to maintain their links with the community. And we always celebrate the diverse cultural occasions that are important to residents.

    Farm Lane also includes an intermediate care rehabilitation suite for individuals who've had a stay in hospital and need some extra help before they return to their own home, and we work closely with the NHS in Fulham to provide this service. We also run stroke rehabilitation sessions. These are run much like a day centre for local people who have had a stroke.

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
