Title:  Care Assistant Days

Location: 

Yarnton, South East, GB, OX5 1LW

Department:  Care (Qualified and Non-Qualified Care Staff)
Operation:  Sanctuary Care
Requisition Number:  177482

 

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.

 

Situated next door to the local primary school, you often hear the joyful sounds of youngsters during their break time. The children often join us for arts and crafts or to give us a sneak preview of a choral performance, which is a real treat. The home also has its own minibus to take residents out and about. From garden centres and museums and other places across Oxfordshire - even trips to the seaside. We also use our minibus to support people living with dementia in their own homes around Yarnton and Kidlington, to get to a local day centre. This is something we are really proud of because we are helping to reduce social isolation within the area.
