- Where you'll work
Welcome to The Burroughs – our warm and welcoming care home in West Drayton, Middlesex.
We provide quality, tailored care for older people, from short term respite breaks to long term residential care, including for people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
All of the team at The Burroughs care home take pride in giving residents the best, tailored care. We take a person-centred approach to what we do: giving each resident choices about their care and encouraging them to get involved in decision-making. We’re always keen to hear their ideas about how we can make life even better here.
We get to know each resident well, then we create a care plan unique to them. We treat each person like they’re one of the family – and their families become our friends. Many of us know what it’s like to have a loved one move into a care home, so we do everything we can to support them, and they’re welcome any time, day or night.
