Cheshire

Cheshire Homes of London has been providing quality in-home Personal Attendant Services to individuals with disabilities and higher risk seniors since 1979. That is thirty-nine years so you could say we are kind of experts by now. Being provincially funded and not-for-profit, we don’t spend a ton of money on marketing and advertising; we would rather utilize those precious dollars to enhance the level of care we provide our consumers. We are also pretty modest and don’t brag about how highly skilled and knowledgeable our employees are. We are proud of Cheshire and it shows every day in what we do. Curious? Then read on my friend.

At Cheshire, your employment with us will provide you, a dynamic and ambitious Nurse-in-training, a rich and diverse experience that will positively enhance your contributions to your future with our agency and in the Health Care field. You enjoy being autonomous while out in the community going to consumer’s homes and building relationships; earning trust is an aspect of your practice in which you excel.

By promoting a ‘Person Centred Support’ philosophy, Cheshire empowers consumers by tailoring an individual’s care to their own unique needs, interests, requests and preferences.
