See How Our People Pride Themselves at Crossways

At the heart of Crossways are our carers and we are looking to support those starting their journey and to develop and nurture those who are already experienced carers. We offer excellent career opportunities and provide regular training to help you achieve senior roles.

These are hugely important roles to those in our care. These individuals are placed in positions of great trust; Kind, patient, considerate and caring interactions are vital to ensure the wellness and happiness of those we care for. We provide comprehensive training for all types of people, from those with no experience looking to start a career in care to dedicated qualifications for experienced carers looking to specialise in a specific field of care.

Good care is a part of a greater sum, of course, those delivering the care are essential but other roles in the Crossways family take good care to great care. We value highly people who ensure safe and clean environments, those who entertain and provide leisurely exercise, and those that make sure services run smoothly and enable others to do their jobs well.

Mealtimes are opportunities to be social and we want our dining experiences to be pleasurable from beginning to end – Well laid out dining areas and tables, tasty and well-presented food, consideration for dietary and cultural requirements, well-timed service – we offer many roles where catering skills can be used to enhance individuals’ experience of care.
