Providing Care for the Elderly since 1945
At BBCH we pride ourselves in providing the highest standards of care in a clean, safe and stimulating environment both for residents and staff. The laundry and housekeeping functions are central to this as they ensure we maintain high levels of hygiene and cleanliness.
The Laundry is a central function operating 7 days a week. We have just refurbished our busy laundry providing a spacious area with four commercial washers and dryers.
The Housekeepers clean rooms, staff and public areas to the highest possible standards and assist in developing and maintaining these standards.
At BBCH we also pride ourselves on the personlised care we offer. As the housekeeping team spends a lot of time in resident’s rooms you may become of aware of areas of concern or improvement, including care, maintenance and health and safety requirements. Anything that comes to your attention should be notified to the appropriate person such as the Senior Carer or the Maintenance team or the management team.
Weekend work will be required on a rotating basis. Weekend and bank holiday hours are payed at enhanced rates.In addition BBCH offers a generous pension plan.
