A brand new residential and dementia care home in Rothley is bringing a raft of employment opportunities to the area. Mountview, which is due to open later this year, will employ nearly 50 local people once it is fully staffed and will provide exciting and fulfilling job opportunities for people who are both experienced in the care industry and those looking to begin their care career.
Construction began on the three floor, 66 bed home by LNT Care Developments at the beginning of the year and locals have watched the home emerge throughout this time. Home Manager, Sue Shaw, was the first member of staff to be employed for the home and since then she has been overseeing all recruitment including Deputy Managers, Care Assistants, a Kitchen Team, Domestic Staff and Hospitality Staff. She is dedicated to developing Mountview as a key part of the community and as well as recruiting permanent staff, Sue is also seeking local volunteers to visit the home and take part in regular activities and events with the residents.
Sue said, “It is so exciting to be with Mountview right from the start and to be recruiting our caring staff team. I am extremely keen to promote care as a positive career choice with plenty of progression for the right people. Each day is different and so rewarding and enjoyable. We have an amazing building to work in and once we have our full staff team everything will be in place to provide wonderful homes for our future residents.”
Mountview staff will complete an intensive induction and shadowing period before beginning their role in earnest. Each resident at Mountview, which is operated by Ideal Carehomes, will have a dedicated care plan co-ordinator and enjoy full and varied activities and trips for an all-inclusive price. The compassionate and highly trained staff team will have access to some of the most innovative and supportive care technology to ensure the best working environment for them and the best home for residents.
