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
Our new care home in Chichester opened in December 2021. We’ provide quality
care for older people in a luxurious setting.
Our experienced and committed team deliver the best in permanent and short-
term residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.
Like in all Care UK homes, the care we provide is tailored to the individual
needs, interests and preferences of each person we care for. We call this person-
centred care. We are also passionate about ensuring that residents and their families
are fully involved in decisions around their care. That way, residents feel in control,
and receive the care they need in the way they wish.
When you first set foot inside our Chichester Grange care home – with its hair and
beauty salon, cinema room, welcoming café and inviting dining rooms – you’ll be
forgiven for thinking you’ve entered a five-star hotel. We believe that moving into a
care home is just another part of life, and one that should be enjoyed to the full. So
everything from the design of the home, to the meals we provide, and the activities
we organise are all focused on supporting residents to feel like royalty.
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.
