Guild Care opens its doors for new residents and potential recruits By Kevin Burke, Director of Quality and Care Home Operations at Guild Care Thursday 19th May 2022 We are hosting a series of complementary care home open days for anyone seeking care for a loved one or a job in the care sector. Choosing a care home that is right for you and your family is never an easy decision, and it is fair to say that it has become even more difficult over the past couple of years. Whether you are seeking care for a loved one or considering a career change, a care home becomes your home. So, it has to feel 100% right. That is why we are throwing open the doors of our care homes with a series of open days, to show the people of Worthing what makes a Guild Care home such a special place to live or work. Our charity has three care homes in the Worthing area, all of which are hosting open days across May and June. Linfield House is a residential and nursing care home, with two dementia suites, that promotes independent living ‐ providing residents with the support and care they need to live well. Haviland House is our purpose-built dementia care home that was a Best Dementia Care Home finalist in the National Dementia Care Awards 2019. Finally, Caer Gwent, which combines superb residential living with 24‐hour expert nursing care, supports individuals with complex health conditions and has a particular focus on palliative support. Our open days will be a great opportunity to see what life is like at these wonderful homes. Visitors will be able to meet the Guild Care family, including Managers, care staff and residents, our award‐ winning Health and Wellbeing Coordinators ‐ the brains behind our diverse schedule of activities - the highly skilled kitchen teams who provide personalised menus, and the laundry and housekeeping teams who keep everything running smoothly. We have several vacancies within our homes and, for anyone considering a new career opportunity, we are committed to giving our people the time to care. Our charity has been built around the ethos of helping people to live well and love every day. The open days will be structured to accommodate both potential carers and care seekers. Those looking into care for a loved one are recommended to attend the ‘meet the teams’ session in the early afternoon – additional details and timings will be available on our website. Those interested in a career with Guild Care can drop in at any time during the day, to work around any existing shift patterns or commitments. Everyone matters at Guild Care. We hope you can join us to see for yourself! Click here to find out more.
