Get to know Canford
Canford Healthcare is the parent company of a group of care homes across Kent, East Sussex, Essex and Middlesex.
Since 2007 we have been providing exceptional residential and nursing care to elderly people, often incorporating specialist support for residents with more complex needs, such as dementia, who find life particularly challenging.
Care may be what we do here at Canford Healthcare, but we like to think that it’s much more than that. We also aspire to be our residents’ ‘home from home’, a place where they can live in comfort and safety, surrounded by their most treasured items, and enjoy quality time with their loved ones.
Employee recognition & reward
Our staff carry a great deal of responsibility for the health, safety and wellbeing of our residents and are also instrumental in shaping the future of our company. They work hard and do an excellent job with compassion and good humour, often under challenging circumstances. As a result, we seek to recognise their valuable work and dedication and reward them appropriately via a varied and competitive suite of benefits.

What our staff have to say
I love working in care as it’s so rewarding. I love meeting and talking to residents and their families. The home is a friendly, caring lovely place to work and my boss is a great person to work for.
I worked in community care for four years before coming into the home but I love it here, working with the residents. It’s great, just being there to care for them. All the staff are brilliant and the training’s been amazing.
I’m a housekeeping assistant and love my job. Working here is great because the people are very friendly and helpful, the environment is fantastic and the everyone works well together, from the management down.
I like the fact that we are free to do pretty much whatever we want as long as the residents are happy! We often play Queen songs and the residents sing and dance and wave their hands because they really love it. The care is person centred – whatever they want, they get!
