Paperwork and Record Keeping
We are a family-run business providing quality residential care homes and support services to older people and those living with dementia. We built our first residential care home in the early 1980s when we noticed that many care homes were set up in old converted buildings that didn’t always lend themselves to meeting the wide-ranging needs of those with age-related difficulties or dementia. We built the home brick by brick to create first-rate, safe and homely accommodation in a community setting. Since those early days, we have grown our business in order to meet the need for first-class, quality care and support for our ageing population. We now have four residential care homes for older people, Pendle Brook, Coniston House, Royley House and Bank Hall. We specialise in catering for the needs of those with dementia as well as offering a fantastic daycare service, flexible respite care facilities and a home care service providing support to people living independently in their own homes.
Exceptional care homes don’t stay special on their own. Our dedicated teams make sure every one of the people in our care has a great experience, every time. Our success relies on the professionalism, commitment and caring nature of each and every team member and we’re always looking for similar-minded people to join us. We welcome applications from qualified and experienced professionals, as well as from those who are just starting out. We’re keen to open up new routes into jobs in the care sector, that’s why we’re continually growing the number and range of training opportunities we offer, helping individuals earn while they learn and contribute to the excellent care we provide. Do great things for us and we’ll do great things for you and your career. Rochcare is an encouraging and supportive company, we provide a comprehensive induction and training programme for both those with experience and those who are just starting out.
Rochcare offers a competitive salary and values the continuous hard work of our employees. As a family-owned and managed company, we believe our employees should be generously rewarded for their dedication to providing exceptional care. That is why we offer the following benefits and rewards.
