Let’s have some fun while we’re at work, support each other and work hard as a team. There’s loads of training and promotion opportunities available for those who want to pursue it and every day job satisfaction at Queens Care Home for all regardless of role.
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 Queens Care Home 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
Through our dedicated activities team, we have just started to do Lingo Flamingo, where our residents take part in sensory linguistic classes here at Queens. Currently, they are learning Spanish. We will be expanding on this by holding themed days to savour the cuisine, music and culture of these countries. Therapet is an organisation where volunteers frequently bring their well-behaved dogs into Queens for a fuss. The dogs are wonderful for our residents, especially those who love animals or owned dogs and miss that canine contact. We also have two hand-reared rabbits, Sonny and Cher – which are adored by our residents and love to come inside the home for a cuddle.
