Cornwall Care is built on love. Love of our people and love for the work that we do. As Cornwall’s largest provider of care, and a registered charity, we’re a little special – and now you can join us.

About Pengover

Pengover sits in a quiet residential spot. Yet inside you’ll find a noisy, bustling community. The focus here is on dementia care for people with complex behaviours, so the days fly by and can be intense. It takes stamina – but there’s endless variety with never a dull moment. And you can really see the difference your care makes.

There are quiet areas for those needing a gentler rhythm, and outside is a charming garden for residents to explore. Above all, there is warmth and good spirit here – passion with compassion. We’re a terrific team who pull together as one. And laughter is key, so bring your sense of humour.

Working for us

You’ll soon become part of the team; learning the ropes from your new colleagues, and being guided through our essential training. By the way, our training is so good it has won awards.

Proud that we’re a Healthy Workplace Award winner too, we focus deeply on your own wellbeing. Our carefully chosen staff benefits deliberately provide for your mental, physical and financial health – to take care of you, as you take care of others.

For those who would like, there are very real opportunities to progress with us. You may wish to move up the ladder in care, or to explore the huge variety of other roles we have, in locations across the county.

Our brilliant Care Academy, in partnership with Cornwall College, gives you access to free courses and qualifications – from vocational knowledge such as understanding dementia, to industry-recognised Diplomas, and business management specialisms. The Cornwall Care world is your oyster!

Care and Coronavirus

We know that Covid-19 is never far from the mind, and we have tight measures in place to keep everybody protected. These include routine testing, Test and Trace, and of course PPE – making a safe setting for all. We’ll even do your uniform washing for you.
