  • Where you'll work
  • Welcome to our beautiful East Sussex care home, close to Crowborough town centre and the stunning South Downs.

    Heather View is a purpose-built, modern care home, with a dedicated and experienced team providing the best in residential, nursing, dementia and respite care for older people.

    We help each resident, whatever their needs, to lead an active, independent and fulfilling life. Our care teams are experts in caring for older people with all kinds of needs, and enjoy working with families to get to understand each resident very well. Once we know residents’ life stories, interests, likes and dislikes we create a care plan for them that’s entirely personalised to their needs, interests and abilities.

    Our ability to provide a full range of care services enables us to adapt to a resident’s changing care needs so that they can continue to enjoy genuine quality of life throughout their time with us.

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.
