Person-centred Care, Individualism & Dignity 

All staff at Melrose are kind, caring and compassionate, driven by an understanding of the needs of each individual in their care. All conduct their role in a respectful way that protects resident’s dignity and allows them to be themselves. They enjoy life, bringing with them an upbeat attitude with smiles and warmth. They are excellent listeners who seek to understand other people’s point of view. They can also communicate to a high level, good at asking questions but also comfortable to talk about themselves and have a chat. They feel comfortable leading others and can do so by their own example. A highly organised individual, with a keen attention to detail.  

Melrose Care Home is a place for people to come and feel at home, both for the people who work here and the people who are cared for by us. We are a real team, with real connections. We have many people who have been with us for years, but we also love introducing new talent into our community.

Fun & Enjoyment  

We want Melrose to feel like somewhere people want to be.
