You will be responsible for supporting older people to live their daily lives to the full, assisting with their physical and personal needs to enhance each individual's well-being.

We are looking for people who are flexible in their approach and sensitive to the needs of residents therefore you must enjoy the company of older people and work well as part of a team. Previous experience is desirable but the right approach and willingness to undertake full training is more important.

There are many factors that lead residents and visitors alike to experience Hillside as such a warm, welcoming and well-designed home.

There's the purpose-built accommodation with its 68 private single bedrooms with en suite facilities, and there's the full activities schedule for those who wish to take part - the home has not one, but two Activity Co-ordinators. But above all, there are the dedicated staff members who combine professionalism with a real interest in each individual - offering the person-centred care that lies at the heart of MHA's values.

Mealtimes, for example, are special at Hillside - tables are laid and dressed attractively, and care is taken to make sure dining is uninterrupted and unhurried, with everyone receiving all the additional care they might require. For special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, expect mealtimes to become appropriate celebrations!

Here, individuals are encouraged to express themselves. Staff members take the time and care to get to know each resident, talking to them and their families about their likes and dislikes and personal backgrounds and stories. Residents also enjoy trips out and visiting entertainment, including musicians and singers.

In every respect, MHA works hard to support older people to live meaningful lives, responding to physical and spiritual needs alike. The patio deck catches the sun on bright days and is surrounded by shrubbery, while the hairdressing salon lets residents take pride in their appearance. We are also committed to nurturing spiritual as well as mental and physical well-being, and our Chaplain offers pastoral support to all at Hillside, whatever their beliefs.
