REGISTERED MANAGER - MAIDSTONE

Clarté Recruitment are working on behalf of a care home who are looking to appoint a Registered Manager.

This 'good' Nursing Home is a care home providing accommodation for up to 50 older people who are living with dementia, who require nursing and personal care. The accommodation is purpose built to care for people who use wheelchairs or have difficulty moving around. The home is located in a residential area of Maidstone, approximately one mile from the town centre.

The home provides the highest standards of support in a happy, stimulating and loving environment. As a family run company, relationships are important to them and they foster relationships with friends, families as well as the healthcare professionals that work in or visit the Home to ensure that care can be tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of each individual. By taking the time to truly understand each resident and people who are important to them, the home is able to take a person centred approach to care which ensures the needs of residents are met while maintaining dignity and respect.

The aim of this family run home is to provide the care and support that residents need in order to lead a comfortable life, to make independent choices and be actively involved in their own care.

Individuals are encouraged to fulfil their potential and lead an active life as part of the community. There is a dedicated Activities Coordinator who ensures that individuals can participate in activities tailored to them on a daily basis, as part of a group or as an individual. Aside from the daily programme there are weekly events from external groups e.g. singers. It is the ethos of the Home that every moment has potential for a resident to be stimulated and engaged to fulfil their social needs.

The home has fantastic qualified chefs who have experience of catering for care home residents. The aim is to provide delicious, nutritionally balanced meals for all residents therefore, all our meals are freshly prepared with menus designed around the diets and personal preferences of residents.

The dedicated care staff are passionate about the work they do and are well placed to take care of resident's needs. They receive regular training to support individuals living in the Home to lead as independent a life as possible and to provide the correct level of support where required.

All staff are trained to support individuals living with dementia and have an understanding of the emotional support required. They are able to utilise a range of listening and communication skills to build up trusting relationships that provide each resident with security and familiarity. Experienced nurses are on site 24 hours a day.

The successful candidate will be a current manager with previous experience or a deputy manager looking for a step up. You must hold a current nursing pin and be able to demonstrate a passion for providing high quality dementia care. This is a full time role of 40 hours per week.
