    What you’ll be doing

    Being a Care Assistant doesn’t just mean helping residents to remain as active and independent as possible while respecting their rights of choice, privacy and dignity. It means having fun and laughter with them and using your skills to help them deal with day-to-day difficulties like personal care and meal times. It  invloves working as part of a team to identify their unique goals and implement personalised care plans. Put simply, it means making a difference - a real difference.

    What you’ll need

    Experience of caring for others would be useful,  including looking after an elderly relative or friend. More important though is your kind-hearted nature, your belief in teamwork and your ability to priorotise a busy workload. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.

     

    Fulfilling lives, fulfilling Careers.

  • Where you'll work
  • Colne View, our welcoming care home in Halstead, Essex, opened in 2012. Since then we’ve developed it into a home where residents enjoy quality care while getting the most out of every day. 

    Our skilled and compassionate team provides a range of care services for older people, from day care and respite care, to residential care and nursing care, plus specialist care for people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. The team also offers specialist nursing dementia care and compassionate palliative and end of life care.

    We’re skilled in delivering care that’s personalised to each resident’s needs, aims, interests and preferences. That approach applies to everything we do, from creating a tailored care plan for each person, through to the menus we create and the activities and outings we organise. Each resident’s experience at Colne View is as unique as they are. 

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.
