Where you’ll work
As well as providing the high standard of care that our residents deserve, we are also extremely proud of our facilities and the activities we offer. We are more than just a care home in Derby, we enrich our residents’ lives, supporting them to live as independently as they possibly can. Gardening activities are a wonderful form of therapy, reigniting the passion for a pastime that many of our residents loved to do before moving into residential care. The fresh air and smell of aromatic herbs also stimulate the senses. With mint, thyme and basil, you can often find us picking herbs. This brings back fond memories for our residents who loved to get creative in their own kitchens. While we are outside we can’t forget to mention our barbecue garden, with a relaxed seating area. This is a really popular spot in the warmer months for family gatherings and community events.
