About You You're an inspiring and motivating leader, who strives to set and maintain high standards. You work on your own initiative to manage problems and have the confidence to challenge and raise issues. You're meticulous when it comes to updating paperwork - in terms of resident records. Naturally, you're a caring person, and the kind who notices the little things that make a big difference to other people. You're a team player, who's outstanding in your own field with bucket loads of respect for your colleagues.
Our homes provide exceptional, kind and compassionate care in beautiful surroundings, in the heart of communities. We offer an impressive choice of care services for a wide range of age groups, with modern nursing, residential and dementia care and support, as well as respite breaks within the majority of our homes. All our bedrooms are en-suite and tastefully decorated. Our dining rooms and restaurants serve delicious and nutritionally balanced, award winning meals. Our activities programmes are exceptional and tailored to our residents from walking clubs, to round the world themed days, technology based fun or baking. We also use the sparkles scheme to ensure even the most unusual hobbies can be supported. The skills and experience of our team members means that we can offer homes that are beautiful to live in, operated professionally, and provide very high standards of care. Springfield Healthcare Group was founded by our CEO, Graeme Lee. Graeme grew up in our Garforth Care Home, which was owned and run by his parents. Since taking the reins in 1994 the company has grown substantially and always with our residents at the heart of every decision.
