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 love providing high quality care which is personalised to the needs of each resident.

Opened in 2009, Manor Lodge is a very modern and attractive purpose-designed care home set just a short walk away from Chelmsford town centre in Essex.

We provide personalised nursing, residential and respite care for older people, and we have specialist expertise in supporting individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

Our friendly and experienced team get to know each resident really well, so that we can provide care that is as individual as they are. We involve residents at every stage of the care planning journey - we find out how they want to be cared for and design a programme around their wishes. We also spend a lot of time getting to know residents' families, listening to their opinions and offering support when it's needed.
