  • Where you'll work
  • Darlington Court is a welcoming care home, just three miles from the seaside town of Littlehampton in West Sussex.

    Our friendly, experienced team provides residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also offer supportive and sensitive end of life care.

    We get to know each resident on a one-to-one basis, so that we can make their care programme as individual as they are. We offer residents a choice in everything that we do and we build strong relationships with each person, their family and their friends.

    Every month we hold a relaxed meeting with residents and their relatives, to discuss how we can make improvements to day-to-day life at Darlington Court. It's a great opportunity for everyone to share their ideas and make suggestions about things like our menu.

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.
