- Where you'll work
- Whitby Dene is a welcoming, purpose-built care home located in a leafy residential area of Eastcote, Middlesex.
We offer residential and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also provide sensitive and supportive end of life care.
Our friendly and experienced care team gets to know each resident on an individual level, so that we can respond to their specific and unique needs. Our tailored care plans focus on residents' comfort and health, and we treat every person with dignity and respect.
Knowing about residents' life experiences, interests and hobbies also helps us to organise activities and outings that they'll want to take part in. And we promote choice and independence by involving residents in decisions about activities and day-to-day life at the home.
We care for residents' families and friends too – we’re always here with a listening ear and a cup of tea, and we support people who continue to play a part in their loved one's day-to-day care. Families and friends are welcome to visit or call whenever they want and we’re always happy for people to join us for activities and outings.
