Addington Heights is a purpose-built care home set in a quiet area next to a park in New Addington, near Croydon.
Our welcoming, friendly team provides high quality, personalised residential and short-break respite care for older people. We see all of our residents as individuals and fully respect their choices. Our aim is to enable each person to stay as independent as possible. And we're very flexible and open minded – our helpful team will do anything to meet residents' needs and those of their families.
By spending time getting to know, and building a friendship with, each resident, we develop a care programme that's truly personal to them. That goes for our engaging activities and fun outings too – we try to find something for every resident or help them to fulfil their wishes if they have a specific idea in mind.

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.
