At Applegarth we have a set of core values throughout the home which ensures all our staff, residents and their loved ones are cared for and well supported. 

We’re committed to recruiting and employing a dynamic and caring workforce that shares our values and beliefs that all adults deserve to live a good life free from harm, fear and intimidation.

Working for Applegarth Healthcare offers variety, no two days are the same – as supporting individuals with complex needs to live life on their terms involves a variety of different types of support.

You may accompany someone to the beach, the park, cinema, help them with shopping or other domestic tasks. Each day comes with a fresh challenge because many of our service users have complex needs and/or challenging behaviour. However, the reward when you make a difference to how their day and ultimately how their life turns out, shouldn’t be underestimated.
