Find Your Next Job at Laurel Bank Care Home in Lancaster
Laurel Bank is a 67-bed care home in Lancaster that has recently been completely refurbished and redesigned with the people we care for in mind. Our bright new reception area provides the perfect spot for socialising and activities, and we also have a brand new dining room and refurbished bedrooms. It’s a warm, welcoming environment, and the perfect place to provide the very best in person-centered care.
Our dedication can be seen in all we do including cooking, hospitality, housekeeping, administration and event organising for all our residents and visitors. We have our own minibus and regularly take residents out to garden centres, coffee houses, museums, theatres and the local countryside. We also encourage them to continue with pastimes they enjoy: computing, photography, woodwork, art, sewing, card making, cooking and gardening to name but a few. We’ve also recently had Wi-Fi installed at the home to allow residents to access the internet or their emails anytime they wish.
A career with us means being part of a friendly team – from our managers, carers and nurses through to our administrators, chefs, housekeeping and maintenance teams, everyone here helps to make this a welcoming place to live and work. You can also expect the training and support you need to truly thrive.
