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.
- Where you'll work
Hinton Grange is a homely and very friendly purpose-built care home set in a quiet residential area of Cambridge.
We provide specialist residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
We go out of our way to make residents happy and to give them fulfilling experiences every day. We get to know each resident as well as we do the members of our own family. It’s the only way to deliver personalised care that fits their needs, goals and preferences – and that makes them feel special.
Everything from the care we provide to the activities we organise and the food we serve is tailored to residents. We listen to their feedback, and that of their families, and we change and improve every aspect of home life.
*The bonus is paid in two parts, 50% on successful completion of probation and a further 50% on completion of 12 months service. Other Care UK terms and conditions also apply.
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.
