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.

Sanctuary Care has over 100 care homes and you can ‘feel’ the difference a team makes the moment you step through one of our doors.  The team at Rowanweald is special and we’re looking for special people to join us. Become a part of it and apply for this role.

 

Where you’ll work

 

You are likely to find us making the most of our care home technology, having invested in a new ‘experience table’. With interactive light games designed especially for people living in the mid-to-late-stages of dementia, it brings people together in a calming but stimulating environment. There are a number of games, which feature projected images of flowers, balls and even goldfish! Residents reach out to touch the images, which respond to their physical movements. Four-legged friends, including dogs, ponies and rabbits, often visit for animal therapy sessions. As you can imagine these activities are very popular and help to bring back happy memories for residents who once had their own pets. They are also extremely beneficial for our residents receiving nursing care, as they can provide one-to-one interaction, often in the comfort of their own bedroom.
