What you'll do

Assisting residents with their physical and emotional needs, you will do whatever it takes to help them get the most out of life. More than just a carer, you will be a true friend who champions their dignity and maximises their independence, and you will have an increasingly important part to play in the development of care plans and the induction of new colleagues.

Who you are

With broad knowledge of caring for the elderly, you will be able to make a significant contribution from your first day. To succeed, you should be capable of prioritising your own workload, maintaining detailed records and using your initiative to the full, and you will be determined to develop your skills with our support.

Who we are

With 120 homes and day clubs across the UK, we provide expert respite, residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. Our highly personal, patient-centred approach has seen us enjoy rapid growth, with three new homes planned for next year, so we can offer exceptional career opportunities to people who care as deeply as we do.

What we offer

As one of our valued care assistants you can expect comprehensive training in general clinical care as well as dementia. What's more, we offer one of the best benefits packages around, including, a stakeholder pension and life assurance scheme, bank holiday enhancements, child care vouchers, thousands of online and in-store discounts and free uniform.
Where you'll work Elwick Grange is a modern, purpose-built home in a pleasant residential area close to Hartlepool town centre.

We offer a high standard of residential care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

Elwick Grange has a very friendly, homely atmosphere. Some of our rooms even have their own front doors. Throughout the home you'll find thoughtful touches which encourage residents to socialise with each other and enjoy their time with visitors. For example, we have a seating area in the foyer where many people like to gather and chat. We always have a warm welcome for residents' families and friends.

Care means everything to us at Elwick Grange and we support and encourage residents in whatever they'd like to do. Our approach focuses on each person as an individual - we make sure everyone has a say in their own care and we involve both residents and their loved ones in planning care and activities.

To help us get to know each resident, we work with them to compile a 'life story book' about their lifetime experiences, their hobbies and their interests. And all of the activities and outings we offer are based on what residents tell us they want to do.

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.
