    Being a Lifestyle Coordinator at Care UK
    Lifestyle Coordinators at Care UK have the ability to understand residents’ needs and go the extra mile to support them to live a fulfilling life.

We’ll also be looking for excellent interpersonal skills and a flair for prioritising a busy workload.

Above all, you have a natural ability to help make the lives of others more enjoyable and want to work in an environment where the work can be challenging, but also fun, fullfilling and rewarding.

    Tailored care and support

    Our care team undertakes experiential dementia training, developed by our own in-house experts. This enables us to appreciate the daily challenges experienced by our residents with dementia, and to care for them with greater empathy.

    We pride ourselves on providing tailored care. We get to know each new resident, from their physical needs through to their personality, what they like to do, where they used to live, their hobbies and interests. Then we set about creating a care plan that’s unique to them.

    Everyone wants to feel involved and engaged, and our residents are no different. Our Activity Co-ordinator, plans activities around residents’ interests so that there’s something to look forward to each day. We might have a stroll into Mitcham, visit the local garden centre, an urban farm
