Work for our award-winning home care company
Home Care Jobs Windsor
We’re kind and honest people to work with. We’re not like any other care provider or care staffing agency. Investing in staff qualifications, healthcare and careers, the company has created a culture of respect and camaraderie amongst like-minded outstanding home carers who are all compassionate and caring people.
And the surrounding areas including Old Windsor, Ascot, Bray, Datchet, Dorney, Englefield Green, Eton, Eton Wick, Great Park and Winkfield
Great Park Homecare are a high-quality care company owned and run by husband and wife team Romola & Adrian, who met whilst volunteering locally for Mencap.
They founded their home care company based on their own loved ones having sadly not experienced the high quality and trusted care they deserved or that was expected.
By understanding clients’ needs, they are able to provide much needed premium home care services as an alternative to residential care services for adults of all ages and conditions.
In fact, the company’s in-home care services are so well reputed to not only deliver peace of mind for clients and their families, but also as a local ’employer of choice’.

We create care packages for all our clients
Here’s how we make sure that we are offering the care our clients want and need…
First of all, our Care Manager visits the home of the person who needs care. She asks some very important questions, critical to understand in depth about individuals and the specific care they need.
Once the care and support needs have been agreed, we give our new client a care plan. This says how often they want to see us and what they’d like us to do for them.
It doesn’t matter what type of care our clients need, we always give high standards of care. Start your home care jobs Windsor journey today.
Other carers have said that until they worked with us, they used to finish their shift and felt upset and unsupported, but with us they feel respected and happy. We operate an ‘open door’ management policy.
