    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
  • At Station House you can expect a warm welcome from the moment you step through the door.

    Station House is a modern, purpose-designed care home set in a leafy residential area of Crewe in Cheshire. We can provide nursing for older people, including those living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. We also offer intermediate and transitional care.

    As soon as you step through our door, you'll notice the home’s warm, welcoming atmosphere. Our experienced, friendly team treats every individual with dignity and respect. We make sure that residents and day guests have choices about their care and how they spend their time, and we help everyone to stay as active and independent as possible.

    We offer flexible daytime care for older people living in the area – day guests can be referred to us by social services or families can approach us directly. We also offer intermediate care, for people who have had a stay in hospital and need some extra support before returning to their own home.

    Maintaining the highest possible standards is very important to us and we recently received Gold Standards Framework accreditation to demonstrate the quality of our end of life care.

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.
