vacancies at Philiphaugh Manor, Cornwall

Much of our care is based on interaction with our residents. In part, it is the emphasis we place on this aspect of care that makes Philiphaugh Manor so successful: it is the feeling our residents have, of being welcome. Home, from home, at all times. Involving residents, family, friends, and staff in different aspects of social support is a challenging role - but it can be incredibly rewarding, as you will know if you join our amazing social support teams.
