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
  • Jubilee House is a welcoming care home located just off Godalming High Street in Surrey .

    We provide personalised residential, nursing and respite care for older people, and our team has specialist expertise in supporting individuals who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

    When a new resident joins us, we find out as much as we can about their lifetime experiences, interests, likes and dislikes.

    We use what we learn to create individual life history boxes’, which help to trigger memories and provide comfort for residents who have dementia.

    Everyone in the Jubilee House team is very open and approachable. We all share the aim of helping residents to stay as independent as possible and we offer choices at all times.

    Many residents play an important part in the day-to-day life of the home, for example by helping out with housework, maintaining the garden or by looking after our pets.
