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. 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 Camilla House 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 Camilla House 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

 

Within walking distance of the home, the local church has a dementia café, where we take residents to spend time with people from other nursing homes in the area. Camilla House is also very lucky to have the Hibernian Football Club nearby in Leith, which embraces us at a club it runs for people living with dementia. Our residents are welcomed along to meet the great players from the good old days, from Willie Henderson to Peter Cormack. These special days happen every month and are simply magical. Our residents’ faces light up as they meet players who are their legends. They have their pictures taken with them and talk about the club.

 

Are you our next Care Assistant? Here’s more about the role:

First and foremost – we work together as a team to enrich our residents’ lives – let’s support our colleagues too and have fun in the process

We give the highest quality of personalised care to our residents in line with their individual care plans

Leisure and social activities are a really important part of the day – let’s get stuck in

It’s very simple – if we can be the best Care Assistant we can be by being kind and supportive in every way to our residents, their families and our colleagues, then we’re all doing a great job.

 

What skills do I need?

Experience is not essential, as we will support you with all the training and support you’ll need to do the job, what is important is that you are caring, enthusiastic and have energy to share
