- Where you'll work
Everything we do at Woodland Hall is designed to make residents feel completely at home.
Our modern purpose-built care home in Stanmore is set in a leafy residential area and provides tailored care and support for older people with a range of needs. We provide short respite stays through to full time residential dementia and nursing care. Our care home in Stanmore also has an intermediate rehabilitation suite for individuals who have recently come out of hospital and need some extra help and support before they return home.
We’re highly experienced in caring for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and our carers undertake specific dementia training, developed by Care UK’s own in-house experts. This provides our carers with a thorough insight into the challenges faced by people living with this condition and allows them to offer supportive and sensitive 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.
