Who we are:

HICA is a not for profit organisation dedicated to delivering high-quality, person-centred care to the individuals who we support.

We are currently looking for Mobile Support Workers to provide care and support to residents across our services at Buckshaw Retirement Village.

Buckshaw Retirement Village provides a new concept in retirement living with distinct communities offering options for ownership and rental in an attractive and well-appointed location.  The site also houses our purpose-built, specialist dementia nursing home which has a range of on-site facilities and regular activities.
