The Meade Close Family are recruiting!
Meade Close is a 9-bed residential care home in Urmston, Manchester, that supports adults with learning and physical disabilities. The home provides a high level of support to enable the individuals we support meet their personal goals and future aspirations!
Meade Close consists of two, four-bed bungalows and a single accommodation bungalow, set within very pleasant and well-maintained private grounds. The home is situated within a five-minute walk of Urmston town centre and is very near to bus and train stops. They are located 2.5 miles from the Trafford Centre and a short distance from Trafford General hospital.
The individuals we support include Kalvin who is a MASSIVE Man United fan! We recently decorated his room with lots of football memorabilia and he absolutely loved it! He loves shopping and is often heading to the Trafford Centre to buy new clothes. He loves a bus journey and spending time with friends.
Other individuals we support love spending time at the local parks, going for walks and spending time in the sunshine! They often spend time in their garden and have planted lots of beautiful plants this year! They enjoy planning and hosting parties at Meade Close and never pass up on the opportunity of cake! Some of the individuals love sensory time and relaxing with friends.
We are often praised for our hard work, and nothing goes a miss. Management are known for sharing the outstanding work of each staff member with the rest of the Salutem Family. We have said we feel very fortunate to be a part of such an amazing team. “I have gained my skills here at Salutem and work with the most amazing people I have ever met in my life and also to support our service users at Meade Close. I couldn’t think of anything better than giving them the quality of life they deserve”.
Now we've shared a glimpse of what it's like to work for us, let us introduce ourselves. We’re Salutem and we are committed to making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of children and adults in England and Wales across our residential homes, schools and day centres. Our dedicated support teams empower individuals to overcome any obstacles and live the life they choose.
Each day will be different, and the main focus of your role is to provide daily support to adults in our residential services. It’s definitely not a normal 9-5, you can work days, nights, and flexible shifts too. Talking of ‘dream’ jobs, some of our shifts are sleep-ins!

We know our staff put 100% into building brighter futures for the individuals we support. That's why we offer career progression no matter where you start in the organisation. Your progress here will be regularly reviewed and as you gain expertise your rate of pay will increase. We believe in creating a Career from Care and we want the support workers we recruit now to become our managers of the future!
