It is of considerable comfort to many older people and their relatives that they can entertain the hope of being cared for in a Christian environment, should the day come when they are no longer able to live on their own.
Ballifeary House, in Inverness, which is run by the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland, seeks to provide such a facility. A traditional home, attractively situated on the banks of the River Ness, it has a 24-bed capacity and cares for the elderly. Endeavouring to maintain Christian values, it enjoys a good reputation with the Care Commission, as well as health and care professionals.
After many years of devoted service, our present Matron has indicated that she wishes to finally retire by September, so there is an urgency to this appointment. The Committee would like to have a new manager in place before September to ensure a smooth handover.
Applicants for this post must be in sympathy with the Christian ethos of the Home and a relevant management qualification in nursing or social care is a requirement. A further qualification in the Safe Handling of Medicines would be an advantage.
Although able to rely on the support of the Home Committee, when necessary, the successful candidate would be responsible for the overall running of the Home, reporting to the Committee on a regular basis.
The post carries an attractive salary and relocation support would be available if required.
