  • About Care UK

    We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support. 

    About the role

    As part of a friendly team led by the Head Housekeeper, you’ll be responsible for carrying out all cleaning duties. You’ll make sure daily and deep cleaning tasks are carried out to a high standard, complying with infection control guidelines. It’s important that you respect the privacy and individual needs of our residents. You’ll also need to be comfortable doing some paperwork and re-stocking cleaning supplies as required. It’s a rewarding role and a supportive workplace where we all pull together. 

    About You

    You may or may not have worked in a care home before but it is important to us that you are a caring, positive person with a strong attention to detail whilst taking pride in ensuring a clean and welcoming environment for our residents as well as families and visitors. You also know about health and safety regulations. You’re a good team player – polite, presentable and mindful of older people’s privacy. When you join Care UK, you’ll get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.

    As a Domestic Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:

    • Contracted hours
    • Free DBS
    • Free Uniform
    • Free Parking
    • Bank holiday enhancements
    • Quality training to develop your skills

  • Where you'll work
  • We love providing care which is tailored to residents' individual needs.

    Kingsleigh is a comfortable and welcoming, purpose-built residential dementia care home offering specialist care for those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. The home is set in a quiet residential area of Old Woking in Surrey and is based in a single-storey building, surrounded by beautiful secure garden areas in which the residents can enjoy in a safe environment.

    We also offer local carers the opportunity to meet every Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm for time out, tea and talks at our Dementia Support Café. Every four weeks from 4th June, a guest speaker will also be joining us to share their knowledge and experiences.

    Our team provides person-centred care, working with each resident to develop a care plan that is as individual as they are. When a new resident joins us, we take the time to find out about their lifetime experiences, their interests and their likes and dislikes. And we use what we learn to create a personal ‘life history plan’.

    Kingsleigh feels very much like a family home, with a relaxed atmosphere and a strong community spirit. We offer a wide choice of spaces where residents can socialise with friends and family. As well as spacious lounges, we have a pampering room and a mini gym. We’re even supported to keep fit by members of Woking Football Club, who come in once a week to do chair exercises with residents.
