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
Crofton Court Care Home is situated in Blyth, Northumberland, in the town centre next to the Community Hospital. There is easy access to shops and cafés, the library and community centres. There are also very good public transport links with Blyth port just five minutes’ walk away.
Crofton Court has a lovely, welcoming feel to it. It is very peaceful, light and airy. Person-centred care is at the heart of our working ethos and staff interact with residents in a polite and friendly manner. They get to know the things they like and don’t like, as well as their little quirks. The staff are always cheery and good humoured, and that rubs off on the residents; it’s fair to say that we really are one big happy family!
We work hard to ensure that the residents are given opportunities to be as physically and mentally active as they wish to be.
