Welcome to Suffolk

Discover an insight below into life in our Suffolk care homes


An introduction to Suffolk from Regional Director, Jennifer Rodger


"In Suffolk/Norfolk we have many exciting opportunities for those of you who want a rewarding job role in the Care sector and who want to make a positive difference in the lives of the residents who live in our homes.

 As a region we are a diverse team with a true family ethos. We embrace Care UK values of caring, teamwork and passion in everything we do. You will have the opportunity to learn, grow and develop as many of our colleagues have within their own home teams and the wider region.

 We feel passionate about the wellbeing of our residents and our colleagues and share good practice and lessons learnt as well as having lots of fun on the way. 

So if you are wanting every day to be a different day filled with love and laughter, our work family will be your work family."

Life in our Suffolk homes

Alongside the fantastic care that we provide in Suffolk, we have a range of engaging activities/events to bring the region together. From Singers and Magicians to annual sports days, there is always something going on within the region.   

We also have a Chef of the year competition where residents and staff judge the food and ultimately decide the chef of the year. Our catering experience is something we are incredibly proud of as a region and take great pride in. We are lucky to have some fantastic chefs who produce excellent locally sourced meals for our residents.

In addition to all we offer our residents, the Suffolk region is a hub of internal promotion. Whether that be progression into a different role or development within a role. As a region, we pride ourselves on self development and there is always room to grow.
