You’re a caring, positive person. You’ve got experience as a cleaner or domestic assistant and ideally, you’ve already worked in a care home. You’ve got a good basic education. This should include GCSE English and Maths (or the equivalent). You also know about health and safety regulations. You’re a good team player – polite, presentable and mindful of older people’s privacy. When you join Care UK, you’ll get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.
Residents are at the heart of everything we do. And the care home is their home. So your role in keeping it clean and tidy is vital. As part of a friendly team led by the Head Housekeeper, you’ll be responsible for carrying out all cleaning duties. You’ll make sure daily and deep cleaning tasks are carried out to a high standard, complying with infection control guidelines. It’s important that you respect the privacy and individual needs of the residents. You’ll also need to be comfortable doing some paperwork and re-stocking cleaning supplies as required. It’s a rewarding role and a supportive workplace where we all pull together.
As a Domestic Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:
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.
We offer a combination of high quality care and a warm welcome from our friendly and professional team.
Meadow Court is a modern, comfortable and purpose-built care home located in the grounds of King George Hospital in Goodmayes, near Ilford in Essex. We provide nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's or other types of dementia, as well as sensitive and supportive end of life care. We also have a dedicated suite for younger people with nursing care needs and learning disabilities.
We provide personalised care that is based on the specific needs of residents. We spend lots of time getting to know everyone, finding out about their lifetime experiences, their interests, and their likes and dislikes.
Our approachable, experienced team offers a warm reception – and a cup of tea – to everyone who comes through our door. And because most members of the team have been here for many years, residents can always be sure of a familiar face.
Throughout the building you’ll find lots of thoughtful details that help make Meadow Court a great place to live. For example, we have low windows so that even if residents don’t want to venture outside on a particular day, they can still sit and watch what's going on.
