Our new care home in Chichester opens in the autumn of 2021. We'll provide quality
care for older people in a luxurious setting.
Our new Chichester Grange care home is taking shape on Grosvenor Road. Here,
our experienced and committed team will deliver the best in permanent and short-
term residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.
Like in all Care UK homes, the care we provide will be fully tailored to the individual
needs, interests and preferences of each person we care for. We call this person-
centred care. We are also passionate about ensuring that residents and their families
are fully involved in decisions around their care. That way, residents feel in control,
and receive the care they need in the way they wish.
When you first set foot inside our Chichester Grange care home - with its hair and
beauty salon, cinema room, welcoming café and inviting dining rooms - you'll be
forgiven for thinking you've entered a five-star hotel. We believe that moving into a
care home is just another part of life, and one that should be enjoyed to the full. So
everything from the design of the home, to the meals we provide, and the activities
we organise are all focused on supporting residents to feel like royalty.

Being a Team Leader at Care UK
Team Leaders at Care UK are flexible in approach and have broad experience of caring for others and leading shifts. They're great at building relationships and inspiring others too. Collaborating and sharing information and ideas comes naturally to them, as does using tact and diplomacy to deal with challenging situations and quickly resolving them. Their innovations help to raise standards, while their passion for what they do is second to none. And, they consider it a privilege to be trusted to look after others. Do you have the same sort of attributes? Then we could have just the role for you.
What you'll be doing
Being a Team Leader Is about acting as a role model by leading and supervising carers day-to-day, working alongside them and completing regular staff appraisals. It's also about taking responsibility for case managing residents and liaising with families, health care professional and other stakeholders to ensure that the best care plans are created and delivered. Working closely with nurses to develop the services we provide is an important aspect of the role too, as is administering medication and carrying out risk assessments. Put simply, it's about making a difference. A real difference.
What you'll need
Well-organised, IT literate and adept at allocating and delegating work appropriately, you have a proven ability to lead and supervise others and a good understanding of care planning processes. What's more, you're trained, or willing to train, to administer medication and used to contributing to, monitoring and implementing changes that improve outcomes for residents. Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more fulfilling and want to work in an environment where the work can be hard, but also fun and rewarding.
