- Where you'll work
We offer a combination of high quality care and a warm welcome for residents, friends and family.
Stanley Park is a modern and attractive purpose-built care home with a peaceful residential location in the heart of the small town of Stanley. We offer nursing, residential, respite and day care for older people, including individuals living with Alzheimer's, other types of dementia and those who may have behaviours that challenge. We also provide sensitive and supportive end of life care.
Our friendly, compassionate team provides a high standard of personalised care to each resident and day guest. We take the time to really get to know every individual and find out about their lifetime experiences and interests.
We involve residents in planning their own care, to make sure they feel valued, listened to and independent. We keep residents’ families informed about all decisions and we always have a warm welcome for visitors – and that includes any family pets that want to pop in.
