Why work for us?

 

We spend so much time at work don’t we, so our ethos at Sanctuary Care is to enrich the lives of both our residents and staff.

Where you’ll work

 

From the very beginning, we welcomed local school children from the village to mark the official opening of Meadow View. They drew beautiful artwork to put in a time capsule, which is buried in the heart of our gardens, ready to be opened on our 60th anniversary. Visitors are often surprised at how many special features the home has. The ground floor bedrooms have French doors opening out onto secluded paved patio areas. Meadow View also has its very own hairdressing salon, as well as a sun terrace on the top floor. We know our care home facilities speak for themselves. But what we think makes us truly special is our team, each and every one of whom is kind and compassionate. Providing person-centred residential care and dementia care, we care for our residents as if they were members of our own family.
