Cornwall Care is a People Organisation.

As Cornwall's largest provider of care, and a registered charity, we provide support services by compassionate, skilled individuals and teams.

In short, we are 'People in service of People' with a vision to 'Transform the human experience of the giving and receiving of care".

And in this our 25th year, we could not be prouder to say that 'We Care for Cornwall'.

As a healthcare assistant for Cornwall Care, you'll be working in our Pengover Home alongside a team of likeminded individuals who all genuinely care about those people whose home you are working in.

Pengover sits in a quiet residential spot. Yet inside you'll find a noisy, bustling community. The focus here is on dementia care for people with complex behaviours, so the days fly by and can be intense.

It takes stamina - but there's endless variety with never a dull moment. And you can really see the difference your care makes.

There are quiet areas for those needing a gentler rhythm, and outside is a charming garden for residents to explore. Above all, there is warmth and good spirit here - passion with compassion.

We're a terrific team who pull together as one. And laughter is key, so bring your sense of humour.
