Working as part of a highly committed team at Sunrise the Care Assistant is one of the key and fundamental roles within our communities. As Care Assistant you will put the residents care and wellbeing at the heart of everything you do. At Sunrise we pride ourselves on the warmth and support we provide to our residents and their families. We promote independence, dignity and quality of life always in a person centred caring and supportive environment.
As Care Assistant in our Dementia neighbourhood you will build meaningful relationships with a specified number of residents and their families as you provide assistance with activities of daily living. You will attend to individual care needs and get to know their unique preferences and personalities. You will assist with daily activities providing residents with both physical and emotional support and personal care as needed. You will help serve food in the dining room, complete dining room clean-up and tidy resident's room. For the Dementia Care Assistant role, you will be able to use Dementia Techniques to validate and recognise each individual resident.
Here what our team says about working here....
'Being a Care Assistant with Sunrise of Banstead, I am extremely motivated waking up knowing that I am going to be delivering Care and supporting someone to have a better day. Being a human being and having the pleasure of looking after another human being is something else, as is being part of such a compassionate and driven team.
I hadn't been a Care Assistant before, but was hired with the promise of adaptable, supportive and extremely present leaders, who have delivered on that promise from day one. I used to be the guy who was lost behind other people's shadows, but Sunrise saw the values in me which no one else had before and have taught me how to shine my own light.
Through recognition and support, my managers enable a home from home environment which is great not only for us but even more so for our wonderful residents . Compassion and a smile go a long way here, no matter what level you are working at. Come and join us, I speak after 2 years here and you won't regret it!'
Our strength lies in the quality of our care and in turn the people we employ to deliver that care.

Sunrise Senior Living delivers resident-centred care services to well over 2,000 residents in the UK. The Sunrise philosophy is founded on encouraging independence, preserving dignity, enabling freedom of choice and protecting the privacy of each resident. This approach reflects the company's mission, which has remained unchanged since the business was founded in 1981: "to champion quality of life for all seniors".
In addition to 25 UK care homes, Sunrise has hundreds of other communities in the USA and Canada. Each care home offers personalised care services based on individual need. These range from basic care and help with the tasks of everyday living to more intensive nursing care in those care homes that are registered to provide nursing.
