What you’ll be doing

Being a Care Assistant doesn’t just mean helping residents to remain as active and independent as possible while respecting their rights of choice, privacy and dignity.

It means having fun and laughter with them and using your skills to help them deal with day-to-day difficulties like personal care and meal times.

It also means working as part of a team to identify their unique goals and implement personalised care plans. And, it means working flexibly to help them explore new interests, engage in physical exercise and activities and make sure they enjoy themselves in a stimulating and homely environment.

Put simply, it means making a difference. A real difference.

What you’ll need

Experience of caring for others would be useful, not necessarily in a paid role you may have looked after an elderly relative or friend.

More important though is your kind-hearted nature, your belief in teamwork and your ability to use your initiative and imagination, follow instructions and prioritise a busy workload.

You’ll be comfortable talking to, and working with, people from different professions, you’re great at keeping records too.

Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.

  • Where you'll work
  • We offer a combination of high quality care and a pleasant location.

    Opened in 2010, Langley Oaks is a very modern and welcoming care home in a residential area of South Croydon, close to attractive parks and woodland.

    We provide personalised residential and respite care for older people with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also offer compassionate and supportive end of life care.

    Langley Oaks has been specially designed to meet the needs of older people with dementia. The layout of the home enables residents to explore freely.

    We take a person-centred approach to care, which means offering lots of choices and always involving residents and their families when making decisions.

    Our aim is for each resident to feel valued and in control, and to have as much independence as possible.

    Our friendly team starts getting to know each resident even before they move in we use a special form to help us find out about everything from important events in their life to what colours they do and don’t like.

    We work closely with each individual and their relatives to create a tailored care plan that takes into account all of their needs and preferences.
