Caring roles

Do you love helping and supporting others and want to make a real difference to our residents' lives? Then a career as a Sanctuary carer could be the right role for you.

It is more about your caring nature than your years of care experience; we are looking for people that will care for our residents as they would do their mum or grandma; with passion, dignity, enthusiasm and respect.

Being a Sanctuary carer is a rewarding and fulfilling career choice – it’s hard work both emotionally and physically, but there are few jobs that leave you with a smile on your face on your way home.

At Sanctuary Care our number one priority is to keep our residents, their relatives and our staff safe.

With the increasing number of reported cases of Coronavirus in the UK, we have taken the difficult decision to minimise all non-essential visits to our residential and nursing homes until further notice. These include routine visits from loved ones and friends, entertainers, hairdressers, volunteers, work experience students and school parties.

We have not taken this decision lightly and understand this will be upsetting for relatives who want to visit loved ones. We do feel this is the best way to keep our residents safe and is one of many proactive, preventative measures we are taking to stop this infection getting into our homes.

We do hope you understand why we are taking these precautions. Please don’t hesitate to call if you would like to speak to us directly if you have any questions or concerns.
