High interest in jobs at new
Waypoints Upton home

Over 200 expressions of interest have already been received from people hoping to get one of the new jobs created at the £6.8 million Waypoints dementia care home in Upton, Poole.

Operations Director Carl Bradley said: “We are encouraged by the high level of interest in employment opportunities we are offering with our third home opening later this year. It is our second home in Dorset.


“Anyone who has visited our very first dementia care home in Verwood knows that the building environment is really lovely place to work in. Our staff are our greatest asset and we invest in their training and personal development so that they can provide high standards of care for the people we look after.


“It can be very rewarding be part of a staff team contributing to innovative dementia care. The community of Upton has been very welcoming to us from the outset and we look forward to fostering a close partnership with the local schools and groups.”

A recruitment fair is being held by Waypoints Care Group on Friday 12th September 2014 from 12.30pm – 4.30pm at The Lytchett United Royal British Legion Club premises in Dorchester Road, Upton.

When the home is fully operational there will be up to 50 Lifestyle Assistants in post, 10 qualified nurses, a care home manager, a head chef and catering staff and housekeepers for the laundry and cleaning support services.

Transformation of the derelict former Greenridge public house site is well underway and the Waypoints home is scheduled for an official opening in December.

The 64-bed care home will provide specialist dementia nursing care and respite breaks services.

A distinctive feature unique to the Waypoints Upton home, opposite the landmark village clock tower, is the courtyard setting with new community facilities for Upton residents to enjoy – a Rowlands Pharmacy and a Costa Coffee.

All Waypoints homes are designed from the outset to meet the specific needs of people living with dementia and feature a social hub where residents can visit their own hairdressing salon, bistro restaurant and traditional sweet shop.

The Verwood and Plymouth Waypoints care homes have received glowing reports from the independent Care Quality Commission inspectors.

For enquiries about residential nursing and respite break services available at the new Upton home contact Carl Bradley on 01425 486766.
