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

 

Around every corner you will find something new to discover and explore, with reminiscence stations on every floor. These are continually updated to provide our residents with new stimulation. They are a real talking point of the home and at the moment, whether you are on the ground floor or the top floor, you will be able to step back in time to the 1920s or enjoy a traditional seaside scene. Residents can enjoy the Punch and Judy stands, feel the sand between their toes in the sandpits and explore old fashioned beach-themed games. You can also turn the clock back by visiting our traditional corner store, which is located near the reception and sets the scene of our care home the moment you walk in. You could be in a 1940s street, rather than the heart of Woolwich. The traditional signage and shop window are beautiful, and our residents love to visit to pick up some tasty treats and toiletries, giving them their much-needed independence.
