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.

Where you'll work
Harry Sotnick House is a stylish and contemporary care home located in a quiet area of Fratton in Portsmouth.

We provide nursing care for older people living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.

Every aspect of the home has been thoughtfully designed to meet residents’ needs and to create a feeling of luxury, comfort and warmth. We’ve created a strong community feel here, with a shop, cafe and library all within the home – but we’re also close to the city centre, the beach and the many other attractions that Portsmouth has to offer. And our striking building includes lots of nautical design touches that celebrate the town’s naval heritage.

Our friendly, highly skilled team supports residents to stay independent and active, and to keep doing the things which are important to them. We welcome residents’ families and friends with open arms, and are always happy to support relatives who want to continue playing a role in their loved one’s care
