If so, Akari Care would love to hear from you! We are looking for passionate level 3 qualified Senior Carers to join our care team working on our night shift.
At Akari Care, we provide residential and nursing care services to the elderly across the UK. Each care home is an extended family, bringing together residents and their loved ones, our colleagues in care, clinicians, hairdressers, commissioners and CQC regulators, members of the local community – the list goes on. We are focussed on creating a warm and inclusive environment in which our residents feel a sense of security and belonging, while at the same time retaining their dignity and self-respect.
We never compromise on the quality of our services and our extended team includes trusted GPs, Dentists, Chiropodists and Dieticians, who all work hard to improve our residents’ quality of life. Our dementia care homes have qualified, dedicated staff who help people to maintain the identity and dignity of our residents.

As a Senior Care Assistant with Akari Care you will be responsible for caring for people with a wide range of needs as well as dispensing medication and keeping care plans up to date.

What’s in it for you
Wallace House Care Home is situated in Dunston, Gateshead. It’s located just a short walk from the local shops, served well by public transport services and is close to the Metro Centre.
Most of our residents and staff at Wallace House are local, and which creates a friendly, family-orientated home. Visitors often comment on the warm and welcoming atmosphere when they arrive.
Our staff have a very people-centred approach with the residents; they very quickly get to know them, what their family and work history is, what they like and don’t like, and so on. They build up relationships that are warm and caring but also respectful, allowing residents to retain their dignity.
