Where you’ll work When you walk into the care home, it’s like you are taking a step back in time. The environment is designed to feel homely and stimulate reminiscence. For many residents the kitchen would have been the heart of their home. Families would sit around chatting and preparing food together. With this in mind, there is the old fashioned cottage kitchen, with a traditional Range oven, a wooden table and vintage-style kitchen equipment. Residents will sit together and supported by the team will prep vegetables for dinner, make cakes and cookies, fold tea towels and simply do things that are meaningful to them. There is a bar area called The Dog and Trumpet, which has a working gramophone and old records to play. There is a traditional bar, tables and chairs. This is a lovely area for residents to take loved ones when they visit. They can sit together and have lunch, with a tipple of something that takes their fancy.
