Job Description
Highview is not a regular retirement home and this is not your regular summer job. It is so much better – and you will experience a totally different approach to resident care. Our ratios are amongst the lowest in the city and you have the chance to work closely with each resident, without strict schedules and care regimens.

Highview Residences is a very special home for people with dementia. This secure home is purpose-built with a unique design that is just like your home only bigger: private bedroom and bathroom, small dining room, walking gardens and truly person-centred care.

You are a positive, creative, flexible person who puts the needs of the residents first. You work with cooperation and kindness with the other members of the care team, under the supervision of the nurse in charge.

· An understanding of the needs and realities of the elderly, including matters of mobility and communication, such as Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementia
