You will be joining a team that delivers high quality person-centred care to people living with dementia. An integral part of this is providing residents with a safe outside space which they are encouraged to engage with and in doing so stimulates their senses. You will be responsible for the garden of the home(s) you work at, ensuring that you work in a flexible and responsive way according to residents' needs.

You will carry out a variety of regular tasks such as weeding, trimming, tidying, and painting - alongside some longer-term projects such as growing vegetables, updating planting schemes, and supporting residents and care staff in gardening activities.

We require dedicated applicants with a professional attitude, and that special caring quality that sets them apart from the rest.

We strongly believe in developing the skills of our staff and offer an extensive range of training courses.

Essential requirements:

Proven gardening experience, either at home or in employment.

Pinnacle Care Ltd:

We operate six residential homes in and around Rugby, Warwickshire. Offering high quality person-centred care for people living with dementia and related mental health needs. Through home care, day care, and residential care - on both a respite and long-term basis.

We believe that each of our homes should provide residents with a friendly and comfortable environment. This allows residents to have as much flexibility as possible, provides a level of familiarity, and encourages activity.

We achieve this by working as far as possible to a number of person-centred care principles and training our staff to a high level, to really understand dementia.
