When we launched Healthcare Homes in 2005, our main objectives were to create an environment where residents receive the highest standards of care; where dignity is respected; where talents and interests are encouraged; and where life is lived to its fullest potential.

We have remained 100% focused to these objectives, and today continue to deliver the highest quality residential and nursing care to all residents who live in any one of our 35 homes across the South East.

Healthcare Homes are looking for an outstanding Chef to provide first class food and hospitality within the needs of a care home environment. It’s all about doing things a little bit differently.

Our Home
Bilney Hall is an example of a quality care home in East Bilney, close to Dereham, that offers a splendid environment for gracious living. The Hall dates back to the 19th century yet its luxurious facilities are very much 21st century. The home was extended in 2010 to provide 21 new single en-suite rooms. Generous single rooms, all with en-suite facilities, are tastefully decorated and provide our residents with the necessary facilities for a quality life in later years. The residential home provides residential care for frail elderly residents and has separate wings for those with dementia.

Bilney Hall are 'dementia friends' with the Dementia Alliance Group and as such a senior carer is training with the Dementia Alliance Group as a care coach.
If you join us as Chef, get ready for something new. Our unique approach to the care sector sets us apart, so to make things happen our people need to be a little bit different too.
