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

Spiritual well-being – distinct from religious affiliation or belief – is a universal need and 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.

You will build good working relationships with local faith communities and take the lead on pastoral, spiritual and religious aspects of life at Laurel Court care home. You will need to be in good standing with your faith community.

You will have excellent listening skills, great empathy, be able to lead appropriate worship and have an understanding of the spiritual aspects of ageing and dementia. Experience of providing excellent pastoral care, ideally to people in later life, is essential.
