Cook - Residential Home

  • Kenley
  • Salary £10.71 per hour Mon - Fri (£13.38 at weekends)
  • Hollybank Residential Home
  • 35-40 hours per week


Hollybank is a well preserved Victorian house set in half an acre of beautiful well-maintained gardens. It has a large gravelled drive for off-street parking for the convenience of any visitors to the home. Although Hollybank could well be in the heart of the country judging by its setting, we are in fact only five minutes walk from Kenley train station and twenty minutes from Croydon's main shopping centre. At Hollybank we also operate a pick-up service for those who wish to visit, but may not have transport available.


At Hollybank it is our aim to give assistance to those who feel the need for a little extra help with their daily routine, or for those people who feel that they may have reached a time when they would like a little more personal care and attention. Whilst providing this service, we understand the need to maintain the individuals right to privacy, choice, individuality and independence.
