A real home-from-home, Forest Hill is one of Barchester's high quality care homes in the East Midlands. Opened in 1996, the home was specifically designed to deliver first class nursing care for up to 55 older people. We also offer support for those living with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia on our Memory Lane Community, which is our dementia nursing unit. Our 32-bedded Memory Lane Community is a prime example of dementia care at its very best.
Our purpose-built specialist unit, the Portland Suite, first opened its doors in May 2012. Our capable and experienced team work towards supporting choice, change and independence for younger adults living with mental health needs and associated challenges. Offering 21 en-suite rooms, furnished to an exceptional standard, our aim is to offer a therapeutic environment intended to support each resident on their own individual pathway to well-being. The home was last inspected in August 2017 and is currently rated 'Outstanding'.
As a General Manager you will have full clinical and commercial control of the home and work to develop a coherent and effective team who provide the quality care our residents deserve.
