You’re a caring, fun-loving person with a passion for helping older people stay fit, active and independent. You’re an excellent motivator and an inspiring leader. And you’re good at building friendships – so you can get to know residents and create tailored activity plans based on their individual interests and ability. Most of all, you recognise what a vital role activity and exercise can play in the physical and mental well-being of older people. You’re willing to go the extra mile with your team to make a big difference to our residents’ lives.
Reporting to the Home Manager, you’ll lead a small team of lifestyle co-ordinators. You’ll work closely with your team to create interesting, tailored activity plans for every resident. You’ll take time to get to know residents and their relatives – to find out which activities or hobbies they find stimulating. You’ll also be responsible for organising outside trips for residents and involving the wider community in the home. It’s a hugely varied role that’s both challenging and rewarding. With quality training and lots of support, we’ll help you make a big success of it.
As Lifestyle Lead at Care UK, you can look forward to:
∙ Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
∙ Fast-track career options
∙ Quality training to develop your skills
∙ Flexible hours
∙ Stakeholder pension
∙ Childcare vouchers
∙ Thousands of online and in-store discounts

- Where you'll work
Set next to Regent's Canal, we offer high quality care and a great location.
Muriel Street Resource Centre is a modern, purpose-built care home set in a leafy residential area next to the Regent's Canal in Islington, north London. We provide residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals living with Alzheimer's, other forms of dementia or mental health issues. We also offer supportive and compassionate end of life care.
Our highly skilled and experienced team spends time getting to know residents individually, so that we can create personalised care plans that take into account each person’s unique needs, lifetime experiences, choices and interests. We involve residents and family members at every step of the care planning journey.
Muriel Street care home has an attractive, contemporary look and every aspect of the home and gardens has been designed specifically to meet residents’ needs. All of our team members share the goal of providing the highest possible standards of care – but we’re also very welcoming and approachable, and always available for a friendly chat.
