Part-time Chaplain at Charnwood House Dementia Care Home (Closing date: 07/06/2020)

Chaplain: Charnwood House Dementia Care Home, Coventry

We’re seeking to appoint a second, part-time Chaplain at Charnwood House to work alongside the present Chaplain. The post calls for a friendly, adaptable and creative person who has experience of supporting people living with dementia.

Part of the MHA group, Charnwood House provides a safe, caring and attractive environment for 65 people with a wide range of needs and abilities who live with dementia.

We are looking for a lay person or an ordained minister who can offer pastoral and spiritual care to residents, including at the end of life, and also support relatives and staff.  An understanding of the spiritual aspects of ageing and dementia is required, demonstrated through experience of providing pastoral care and leading services.   It is essential that the person appointed has professional experience with elderly frail people and people with dementia. The post is a rewarding opportunity for the right person to make a difference to the spiritual wellbeing of the residents.

The post is for 10 hours per week. The person appointed will be in good standing with their faith community and will build good working relationships with local faith communities.

More information about the post and details of how to apply are available on the MHA website http://www.mha.org.uk/careers. The closing date for completed applications is Sun 7th June 2020.

MHA homes are currently closed to visitors because of coronavirus (Covid-19). As a result interviews will be done through Zoom.

Anyone with questions about the post is welcome to get in touch with Cathy Dakin, MHA Regional Chaplaincy Advisor (Cathy.Dakin@mha.org.uk).
