- Where you'll work
Having fun, keeping busy and delivering the best of care is central to life at Hadrian Park care home in Billingham.
Here at Hadrian Park every member of our team prides themselves on delivering the best in residential and residential dementia care for older people. Flexibility is essential when caring for older people, so we are delighted to be able to provide short term respite care and day care to give family carers a break to have some time to themselves. We have also just started taking older people with learning disabilities who need residential care.
When a new resident joins the care home we work very hard with them and their loved ones to get to know them and understand what makes them tick. We find out all about their lives, what they’ve done, their interests and hobbies, and what their everyday routines have been, whether it’s walking the dog, having an evening pint or taking the pram around the block at school times. Then we do our best to incorporate all of that into their care here at Hadrian Park, as well as the activities we do, and even the food our catering team prepares.
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.
