The day-to-day running of our dementia care homes requires a range of skills and comprise experienced care assistants, care-students, registered nurses, cooks, cleaners, day-care workers, and care-home managers.
A Second-job Care Student is a student that is looking for a second job in care that will gain them some industry experience and further enhance their studies in the care sector. Care Students will be keen to work with spirit and supervision to make a positive difference in the lives of our residents.
What do we ask from you?
If you are enthusiastic, can adapt well to new situations, and would be willing to undertake a Care Induction or higher-learning course, then Leaf Care would love to hear from you.
Leaf Care welcomes students that are looking for course placements. We will support you in putting to practice what you have learnt in theory. Additionally, we can support a desire to learn more about social services, administration, and hospitality within the care sector.
Let us know that you are interested
For an informal chat, please email us at email@example.com, providing your full name, contact number, and the best time for us to call you.
Do you love spending time with people? Do you have some free time? We welcome new volunteers and would love to hear from you. As a volunteer at Leaf Dementia Villages, you can support our residents in living a life that closely reflects the life that they were used to.
Volunteering can be hugely rewarding. The time that you give will never go unrecognised, with staff, residents, and members of their family appreciating the time that you provide to help with cake baking in our kitchen, watching a movie, sharing a walk, or having a chat over a cup of tea.
If you would like to understand more about becoming a volunteer, you can email our volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org

Listen to our staff
‘I am new to care, and I work at Homely House. I like my job. We are a small team, and I am a Key Worker to three of the residents. Part of my job is to help them remain as independent as possible; I find out what they like to do and provide lots of opportunities for them to do the things they love. I work with the team well, and we all like to do things with the residents. The care home feels just like a home for the people that live here’.
‘I’ve worked on a few projects for Leaf Care. I worked at the Dementia Village for a week to help with new residents. We get to know the residents well and learn a lot about what their lives are like and what they enjoy. What’s great is the care home feels like a home, so it’s much easier to help people settle and make friends as we always chat over a cup of tea’.
