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

Catherine Court is a modern, comfortable care home set in a quiet residential area of High Wycombe.

Our friendly, experienced team provides nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's, other types of dementia and physical disabilities.

At Catherine Court, we take a very person-centred approach to care - we get to know each resident individually so that we can create a care programme that's just right for them. The one-to-one and group activities that we organise are all tailored to residents' interests too.

The home has a very relaxed atmosphere which helps residents to feel safe and comfortable. The circular design of the home, with beautiful courtyard gardens in the centre, helps residents with dementia to find their way around and feel secure in their surroundings. We always have a very warm welcome for residents' families and friends, and everyone in the team goes that extra mile to offer any support that relatives need.
