Care Assistant - Nights
Abbeyfield is a charity for elderly people, providing housing to more than 7,000 residents across the UK and internationally. It is our mission to enhance our residents’ quality of life through high quality accommodation in a stimulating environment, maintaining a socially active life.
We’re committed to providing the highest standards of care to our residents, and we believe that great care starts with great people. The interests of our valued staff and residents sit at the heart of what we do.
Abbeyfield is more than a home; it’s a neighbourhood, a community, a family. Are you ready to be a part of it?
As one of our highly valued carers, you'll be at the front line of care delivery. You’ll help residents with their individual care needs such as personal care, medical care and following social interests. You’ll build a special bond with each resident and give professional and emotional support during difficult times such as periods of illness.
You just know exactly how to make the residents feel as comfortable as possible and put a smile on their faces. Above all, you’ll treat residents with kindness, respect and compassion, ensuring each individual has a choice and feeling of self worth.

There is a warm and welcoming atmosphere in our home where residents receive excellent standards of care from our friendly, kind, and long-serving team. Our staff genuinely care about the well-being of our residents which is at the heart of everything we do. As manager at Pratt House, I value every member of my team.
In return for their dedication and commitment to their role, we support every individual’s career with tailored training opportunities and offer flexibility in roles with shift patterns to offer a better work-life balance. Every day is different. If being part of a closely knit team who pull together to ensure that residents always get the very best care, then we would love to hear from you.
