Kingsleigh is a comfortable and welcoming, purpose-built residential dementia care home offering specialist care for those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s. The home is set in a quiet residential area of Old Woking in Surrey and is based in a single-storey building, surrounded by beautiful secure garden areas in which the residents can enjoy in a safe environment. We also offer local carers the opportunity to meet every Wednesday from 2pm to 4pm for time out, tea and talks at our Dementia Support Café. Every four weeks from 4th June, a guest speaker will also be joining us to share their knowledge and experiences. Our team provides person-centred care, working with each resident to develop a care plan that is as individual as they are. When a new resident joins us, we take the time to find out about their lifetime experiences, their interests and their likes and dislikes. And we use what we learn to create a personal ‘life history plan’. Kingsleigh feels very much like a family home, with a relaxed atmosphere and a strong community spirit. We offer a wide choice of spaces where residents can socialise with friends and family. As well as spacious lounges, we have a pampering room and a mini gym. We’re even supported to keep fit by members of Woking Football Club, who come in once a week to do chair exercises with residents. Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
