Healthcare Positions

Our healthcare Assistants and Carers are fundamental in ensuring we deliver the best care we can to our residents.

Encore Care Homes provide specialist care and support to older people delivering nursing, dementia, residential, respite and palliative care. Despite these uncertain times, we are continuing to recruit and are currently looking for caring people who are passionate about delivering care to the elderly.

Healthcare Assistants assist in the delivery of care, planned and assessed by Senior Healthcare Assistants and Registered Nurses by directly providing practical, physical, social and emotional care. Supporting all residents in a manner sensitive to each individual’s needs and wishes, acknowledging their rights and beliefs at all times.
