Great jobs for great people

At Canford Healthcare, there are always a number of opportunities for promising people.

At all of our care homes, many of which are rated as 'good' by the Quality Care Commission, we recognise that it is our staff members who are our greatest assets. Vital to our success at Pentlow and Inglewood nursing homes, both in Eastbourne, as well as Ashridge Court, in Bexhill-on-Sea, is our dedicated teams which deliver the care that makes us a success.

As well as our facilities in Sussex, we also operate from homes in Kent including Barty House, in Maidstone, and our Tunbridge Wells Care Centre. Many of our homes have regular therapeutic sessions which are enjoyed by our residents, some of whom are receiving highly-individualised care support.
