No two days are the same when providing care in our homes, with varied activity and event schedules, newcomers and family visits add an element of surprise to each day. It’s truly wonderful to experience the feeling of accomplishment and fulfilment that arise when residents discover a new hobby or make a new life-long friend.
At Huntington and Langham Estate, we’re a family-owned and operated care home that delivers compassionate care to the Surrey community. What makes working at the Estate different is it’s so personal, and relatively relaxed. The people also make the estate unique, as everyone cares for each other. Charlie and his sister Sarah ensure that high standards of care are lovingly provided across the two specialist Dragonfly and Butterfly care homes.
The way the residents smile and acknowledge you when they see you and hear your voice is priceless.
Join Our Family of Carers
We are an award-winning*, family-run care home looking to recruit someone on behalf of our residents who will be able to support them with their daily lives.
Our team benefits from high staffing levels (up to 1:3 carers: residents, and even higher when you take our nurses, homemakers and housekeepers into consideration), innovative care models (we were the first care home in the world to be awarded a Level 1 in the Dragonfly Approach), and a family-run ethos (three generations of the Hoare family live on the estate along with their cats, dogs, chickens, sheep and horses and have been running the estate for 44 years).
As Team Leader, your role is to manage the team and the day-to-day running of the floor. This includes ensuring all team members are completing their tasks to the required standard, whilst delivering the best care and safety practices for all those who live with us.
The favourite part of our Team Leader's role is being able to share moments of laughter with the residents – their smiles never fail to light up the room! As Dragonfly & Butterfly homes, our approach to care is creating meaningful moments everyday for both the team and our residents. Some of these memorable experiences within the role come from being able to get involved in activities, which often include trips out to the park, pub and garden centre visits, and days out shopping.
What makes working at The Huntington & Langham Estate unique, is the family feeling that’s created throughout the whole estate; as a team we place a high value on creating friendships and connections, making it a really enjoyable place to work, especially when forming relationships and connections with our lovely residents.
At Huntington and Langham Estate, it’s amongst our values to take a holistic approach to the care we offer our residents. We place equal importance on treating our residents with respect, as we do on creating a happy, friendly environment.
As a Healthcare Assistant, you will be supporting the provision of care working as part of a team to ensure residents receive quality care, retaining their dignity and individuality, whilst also being involved in the general activities of the home.
We adopt the Dragonfly approach to care for Huntington House residents, which means we give control back to each individual, valuing their personal choices on an emotional and social level, allowing them to be "free to be me". The Butterfly approach at our specialist Dementia care home Langham Court, means we have a person-centred care culture valuing emotional intelligence and focusing on people as individuals. This enables carers to make meaningful connections with the residents to understand their unique stories.
"I witnessed the most amazing care and compassion shown to her by the dedicated staff. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them, and the way that Jill was looked after by the carers and nurses, the understanding, patience and the personal respect shown to her, especially in her final days and hours, as her health rapidly declined, was nothing short of outstanding."
