  • 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.
