The centre of excellence was built in 2015, and in January 2019 the home was rated 'Outstanding' for its responsiveness and 'Good' overall following a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspection. Haviland House has been working with Dementia Care Matter to improve the quality of life of the people living here. In November 2018 its Bramber and Clapham Households became Dementia Care Matters Butterfly Homes®. Haviland House is currently the only dementia nursing home on the south coast to have achieved Level 1 accreditation from Dementia Care Matters. Our approach is all about making Haviland House a home for life, and making it a calming and comfortable environment for our residents which also means that that staff no longer wear uniforms or adhere to strict routines. Our staff are trained to nurture people within this safe and comfortable home. We remove the feelings of 'us and them' to create a family home environment, focusing on quality relationships between 'family members'. Our commitment is to provide a person centred approach and therefore minimising neutral care. We never take a ‘one size fits all’ approach, and provide care in a way that values each individual’s likes and dislikes. You don't need a background in care to apply; we take account of a person’s potential rather than their current skills. When applying please give examples to demonstrate how you would make a positive difference to a person's life by contributing to their health, happiness and well being. You must be 18 or over to apply. Salary £8.50 - £9.75 per hour dependent upon experience and shifts worked. Shifts Preferably full time 36/42 hours per week.
