Would you like to make a positive contribution to benefit older people?
Spiritual well-being – rather than religious affiliation or belief – as a universal need is a cornerstone of MHA’s positive approach to ageing and we aim to provide the highest quality care and support for older people of all faiths and none.
We are looking for a person who is in good standing with their faith community to take the role of chaplain (a lay person or an ordained minister). They will build good working relationships with local faith communities and take on pastoral care, spiritual and worship aspects of life.
An empathetic understanding of spiritual aspects of ageing and dementia, demonstrated through experience of providing pastoral care and, ideally, leading services, is essential.
Learn more about the support and friendship MHA Chaplains provide to our 7,700 residents across the UK by watching our ‘Care of the Spirit’ video.
MHA has provided dementia care services at Westbury since 1989 in partnership with the local Primary Care Trust and Council. Westbury Grange was MHA’s first home to provide a high quality service specifically for older people with dementia.
With an emphasis on person-centred care, Westbury has specially trained staff to build relationships and ensure that each individual can choose how they wish to spend their time and express themselves.
Small-group living creates a homely environment where everyday living skills can be continued, and safe access to outside areas encourages people to continue enjoying fresh air and being outdoors.
