Care Assistant – The Gables Care Home – Great Yarmouth
Full and part time available
Healthcare homes have 35 Residential and nursing homes spread across East Anglia and the South of the country. The business was launched in 2005 with the main objective to ensure residents receive the highest possible standard of care; where dignity is respected, talents and interests are encouraged and where life is lived to its fullest potential.
The Gables and its gardens overlook the promenade at Gorleston, near to the towns of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. Whilst the Home has splendid views of the North Sea, residents are encouraged to enjoy the promenade to ‘take in the sea air’. Whether you are interested in ships, small boats or people, there is always something to watch. The grounds, a mere stones throw from the beach, include a sheltered patio, waist high flower beds and a barbecue area. The annual fete, held in the garden, is one way in which The Gables fully embraces the community spirit.
