- Where you'll work
We offer high quality care in a great location close to the centre of London.
Highbury New Park is located in a quiet residential area of Islington in north London. We provide personalised residential and nursing care in a friendly and welcoming environment. Our team has specialist expertise in caring for people who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
At Highbury New Park, we get to know every resident as a person, finding out about their lifetime experiences, likes and dislikes, and what they enjoy doing. We use these insights to create individualised care plans and to organise activities that we know residents will find engaging and fulfilling.
Our great location means we can take advantage of the many facilities that Islington has to offer, from cinemas and cafes to an attractive local park and the nearby Kenwood House. We also have a lovely garden of our own where residents and visitors enjoy spending time in good weather.
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.
