Trusted to care in Donnington
I worked alongside Care UK for a few years while working for Boots Care Services, which supplied medication to Care UK homes. Every time I met with managers and clinical leads from the homes I was impressed with the environment and the values of Care UK. After 2 years away from the care industry, I decided to officially join Care UK. I love working with like-minded people who want to help loved ones live their best lives.
I think my role needs good listening skills, empathy, and caring for others. You need to be able to be patient and supportive in difficult and emotional times. I like to support other team members when starting their Care UK journey.
My favourite part of the day is chatting with the residents and getting to know them better. I love reminiscing over a good cup of tea as a great way to destress and remind ourselves why we do the job we do.
Every day Care UK colleagues live our values of passionate, caring and teamwork to empower residents to enjoy fulfilling lives.
Our hardworking teams always keep residents and their families at the heart of the care they provide. We work with you to shape the care your loved one receives, the food they’re served, the activities and experiences they want to do – even the ways they prefer to keep in touch with their friends and family.
The nurses at Care UK are highly skilled and receive sector-leading training, which enables them to keep developing expertise in different clinical fields from dementia to palliative care.
Our dedicated lifestyle teams work hard to organise a range of activities and events at our home. From gardening and baking to quizzes, music sessions and even live entertainment. Above all, we get to know your loved one to make sure our activities are tailored to suit their interests and hobbies.
From catering to maintenance, housekeeping to administration, our home support teams play a crucial part in ensuring residents enjoy an exceptional and safe service every day.
All our teams get to know residents to ensure they provide a service that’s designed around their unique needs and tastes.
Each of our homes have a trained Infection Control and Prevention Champion – they are responsible for carrying out daily infection control audit and ensuring cleaning protocols are meticulously applied.
