Would you like to make a positive contribution to benefit older people?

The ability to form positive relationships with residents, their families and professional colleagues is vital.

You will need to demonstrate your commitment to good care practise through a QCF or equivalent Level 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care, and practical experience of caring for older people, as well as the willingness to train to develop further.

Aughton Park care home was acquired by MHA in 2002. Designed and built by Norman Ibbotson, the home won the prestigious Pinders Design Award in 2003 for the quality of the building.

In March 2004, Aughton Park opened a new unit specifically designed for 13 residents living with dementia.

Under MHA's management, writes the Manager, "We have been blessed with a wonderful Chaplain and also our amazing group of volunteers from the local Methodist Church who have provided our residents with friendship. Valuable time is also given by a volunteer group to organise weekly in-house activities, services and outings."
