Are you a Senior Care Assistant who thrives on making a real and positive difference to the lives of older people?
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 as part of our day 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. With a focus on living life to the fullest, our homes offer activities such as hairdressing salons, bars, cinemas, gardening, and cooking courses to name just a few!
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.
Part of being a Senior Care Assistant is to support our Care Assistants with their development to become the best carers they can be. If you have not done this before don’t worry, we will give you the tools you need as part of your own personal development.
Internal progression is something we actively encourage here at Akari, we have Deputy and Home Managers who have developed their careers with us from being a Care Assistant. So, if progression is something you want, then Akari is the place for you.

What’s in it for you
Piper Court Care Home is situated in a housing estate in Stockton-on-Tees. It is a traditional working-class community made up of hard-working, warm and generous people.
The welcome we give to visitors reflects the friendliness that is evident in the wider community. As people come through the door they are greeted with a smile and asked if they would like a drink, no matter who they are.
When staff interact with residents, we don’t want them to be someone they’re not. Lots of our staff are from the local community, so interaction should be just as it’s always been. This is such a close community and we want to encourage social rapport, so not only are staff very warm, they use colloquialisms. We get the families involved too – it’s a very eclectic approach.
