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
We offer a combination of expert care delivered within a homely, welcoming atmosphere.
Greville House in Richmond is a welcoming care home which provides personalised nursing, residential and respite care for older people. We also provide intermediate care for individuals who require additional support before returning home after a stay in hospital.
We have a dementia suite with ten rooms where we provide specialist care for residents who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our teams working in this suite have had specific dementia training so they’re able to meet the unique needs of these residents.
Our experienced and friendly team respects residents’ individuality and dignity at all times. We work with residents and family members to create individual care plans and we involve everyone in decision making about important aspects of life at the home, like what we have on our menus. We also encourage residents to decorate their rooms to their own tastes.
We have a great location, close to good public transport links and just a few minutes’ walk away from Richmond Park and the River Thames. The shops and facilities of Richmond town centre are nearby too.
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.
