South Gloucestershire Council will be making nominations into the rented units. For the residents of Edward Jenner Court, extra care is always at hand.  Louise Young, Agincare’s Extra Care Manager in Bristol and South Gloucestershire locations, says:

I’m really proud of our teams. We achieved an ‘Outstanding’ CQC report, which is wonderful because our extra care schemes are multi-site.

With our added support, residents can make the most of Edward Jenner Court’s superb facilities, which include a café/bistro, hair salon and lounge. The Court’s scenic surrounding area is only a stone’s throw from local shops and amenities. A convenient bus service connects Lyde Green to the centre of Bristol, providing leisure with ease for residents and visitors alike.

Extra care, sometimes known as assisted living, enables residents to enjoy the best of both worlds. Our site-based care assistants will work around resident preferences. By creating a bespoke care plan tailored to each individual, extra care makes living an independent, low-maintenance lifestyle easy.

With extra care, residents can retain autonomy, privacy and independence, while being uniquely able to benefit from round-the-clock support, as much or as little as required. Our experienced care team can assist with medication, personal care, emergency support, and everything in between.

We are hiring care assistants local to the area! There’s an opportunity to join over 3,500 team members nationwide! We are recognised as a top-rated workplace in the UK by leading recruitment site Indeed. If caring for others is what you do, we’re hiring for heart.
