Title:  Care Assistant Days and Nights

Location: 

Watlington, South East, GB, OX49 5AE

Department:  Care (Qualified and Non-Qualified Care Staff)
Operation:  Sanctuary Care
Requisition Number:  178002

 

At Sanctuary Care, we believe in providing high quality care homes where people are looked after with the utmost dignity and respect. It goes without saying that kindness is what care is all about, so first and foremost, we carefully choose our staff for their kind and compassionate nature. We aim to care, nurture and enrich the lives of all in our ‘family’ at Sanctuary Care, whether that’s our staff, residents or family members.

 

We make the very most of the South Oxfordshire community, with our very own minibus and designated driver. One of our residents’ favourite places to visit is the Age Concern café on Watlington's High Street, which serves the most amazing hot chocolate. Some of our residents have even been to Buckingham Palace in the minibus! But nowhere is quite like home, especially with such stunning grounds. With raised flower beds, seasonal planting, a water feature, peaceful walkways, relaxed seating areas and a large lawn, they are a real focal point for our garden parties.
