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.

You will be responsible for carrying out assessments and developing, implementing and evaluating care plans for our residents whilst monitoring all work areas and practices to ensure they are safe and conform to standards, policies and legislation.

Maintaining accurate records is very important and you will have an eye for detail to enable if any problems arise you are well equipped and ready to deal with this.

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.
