You
You’re a caring, fun-loving person with a passion for helping older people stay fit, active and independent. You’re an excellent motivator and an inspiring leader. And you’re good at building friendships – so you can get to know residents and create tailored activity plans based on their individual interests and ability. Most of all, you recognise what a vital role activity and exercise can play in the physical and mental well-being of older people. You’re willing to go the extra mile with your team to make a big difference to our residents’ lives.

Your role
Reporting to the Home Manager, you’ll lead a small team of lifestyle co-ordinators. You’ll work closely with your team to create interesting, tailored activity plans for every resident. You’ll take time to get to know residents and their relatives – to find out which activities or hobbies they find stimulating. You’ll also be responsible for organising outside trips for residents and involving the wider community in the home. It’s a hugely varied role that’s both challenging and rewarding. With quality training and lots of support, we’ll help you make a big success of it.

As Lifestyle Lead at Care UK, you can look forward to:
∙ Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
∙ Fast-track career options
∙ Quality training to develop your skills
∙ Flexible hours
∙ Stakeholder pension
∙ Childcare vouchers
∙ Thousands of online and in-store discounts

About Care UK
We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.Our care home’s name, Scottish Gaelic for ‘friends and relatives’, sums up the welcome you’ll receive, as well as our approach to care.

Here at Cairdean House, in Colinton, south west Edinburgh, we offer the highest standards of nursing, residential and respite care for older people, including those who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our 90-bedroom purpose-built care home opened in early 2013 and has already established a strong reputation for its expertise and ground-breaking approach.

Inspiring design

Cairdean House is a care home with a difference. It has been innovatively designed by internationally renowned architect, Richard Pollock and sits in the beautiful village of Colinton in Edinburgh. Richard and his team created the design with every thought for the needs of older people, particularly those living with dementia, and the smallest of details are considered in their approach.
