Head of Community Services (older people residential care)
Morden College is a Charity dedicated to supporting older people.
Founded in 1695 by the pioneering merchant, Sir John Morden, the College has been at the forefront of enriching older peoples lives for more than 300 years https://mordencollege.org.uk/history/.
Today our core purpose is to provide older people who are in need with a home for life, to support them as they grow older, and to provide care services, including residential care and residential nursing care, if the need arises.
We are a strong community, committed to enabling the older people we support to have the highest quality of life, for the rest of their life.
Each year the College spends a little over £11 million each year, and offers three types of residential care accommodation as well as financial assistance. The College recently opened the John Morden Centre, which offers a range of community facilities for residents from across all our sites.
We recognise that we are no longer as simple as being an almshouse providing homes for older people, which is how the Charity was founded. For a number of years Morden College has offered its beneficiaries care services: Domiciliary Care in Blackheath only; Residential Nursing, Dementia and End of Life Care for all; GP services and access to a range of exercise classes, physiotherapy, and other therapies for all; subsidised Chiropody, and oversight across all the community by a health and wellbeing team.
As Head of Community Services you lead the multi-disciplinary team that provides a comprehensive residential housing management service across all our schemes ensuring a range of tailored housing and associated services are available for beneficiaries to enable them to maintain their tenancy and live independently in the community.
