Greensleeves Homes Trust, operating as Greensleeves Care, is a growing and dynamic charitable organisation, which provides highly innovative and award-winning care for older people in its residential, dementia and nursing homes across England.
As an organisation, Greensleeves Care is constantly adapting to meet the needs of older people. The charity has successfully introduced the Eden Alternative approach to care, to improve the quality of life for residents at all of its care homes. The Eden principles provide a framework to transform traditional approaches to care into the creation of communities where life is worth living and where older people can thrive. We aim to set and maintain the highest standards of good practice within an environment
that encourages residents to thrive as individuals and employees to fulfil their ambitions as caring professionals.
The organisation has a proud heritage of public service. In 1997, Greensleeves Home Trust emerged from Women’s Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS) whose uniform featured greensleeves – hence the name. As a charitable trust, we are not-for-profit, so all funds available are invested back into our operations. It also means that, in our view, we can offer outstanding care and services to residents whilst charging comparatively modest fees. We operate our homes in a transparent, open manner and we welcome visitors and inspections from all relevant regulatory bodies. As far as it is practicable our services are open to all older people who seek them. Admission is based on the particular home’s capacity to meet the assessed health, personal and social needs of the prospective resident.
We know that recruiting and retaining the best people is one of the most important elements of having a great care home. To compensate our employees for the wonderful work they do, we reward them through a combination of an attractive and sector competitive salary, high levels of engagement and involvement, and a commitment to employee development.
What makes us a great organisation for working parents is the fact that, as a residential care home provider, we are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year! This means we can offer that flexibility of shift pattern which we know is integral when you have children. We are pleased to be able to offer flexible shift working including nights, twilights and other day shifts that can fit around a busy parents priorities, see our available jobs for more information!
