Care Assistant

Here at Dene Park House we are looking for an enthusiastic, caring and exceptional Care Assistant to join our caring forwarding thinking team.

We are looking for carers who are starting out their career and carers who are experienced who want to be part of Akari Care and who will be proud to be a part of the family.

Akari Care will offer you development plans, never curb your enthusiasm and support you in every way. In return we will look to you to promote an atmosphere which enables our residents to have fun and thoroughly enjoy living at Dene Park House, whilst assisting them with their individual needs.

Dene Park Care Home is situated in South Gosforth, Newcastle upon Tyne.

We have a low staff turnover and a team of passionate and dedicated staff. Visitors to our Home are always greeted with a smile, and offered a cup of tea or coffee, no matter what their visit is about. We want them to get a good first impression, to make them feel comfortable, particularly if they are looking for a Care Home for their loved ones, which is often a traumatic time for a family. In these cases we take them round the Home and introduce them to our Carers, the residents and, whenever possible, their families.

Our residents are very active. Our Activities Co-ordinator offers a wide range of activities every day: arts & crafts, armchair exercises, games, a knitting club, recall and reminiscence, pamper days, cinema matinees, group activities and 1-2-1 sessions, as well as regular visits from singers, when residents often join in!
