    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
  • Echelforde is a welcoming, purpose-designed, care home with a great location in the centre of Ashford in Surrey.

    We provide high quality residential, respite and day care and our team has specialist expertise in caring for older people with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.

    Echelforde is a very welcoming and comfortable care home, with lots of small, thoughtful touches that make a place feel like home – like having an ice-cream van that calls by in the summer. We operate an 'open door' policy which means that relatives are free to visit whenever they need or wish to.

    At the heart of the home is our well-equipped day club. This offers lots of activities for existing residents as well as welcoming in people from the local area. Residents and day guests use our day club for many different activities and there’s always something interesting and fun going on there.  

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.
