At Thornton Hill we have a caring team of well qualified professionals, passionate about what they do and dedicated to ensuring our residents always feel confident that they can rely on a friendly face and helping hand 24-hours a day.
We encourage visits to Thornton Hill so you can meet our team and get a feel of what it would be like to live here. You will be able to look around, meet other residents, find out what goes on and ask any questions you may have. It is important to us that you make the right decision and are happy with your choice of new home.
I thoroughly enjoy my job and feel so passionate about caring for our residents. I like the challenges I encounter and that no two days are the same. I love meeting new people and it gives me great job satisfaction to work with such a dedicated, caring team of people.
I must say this is one of the most enjoyable jobs I’ve ever had. You never seem to do the same thing from one day to the next which, at times, can be challenging, but also makes your job extremely varied, and certainly never boring. I love the fact that one minute you could be reconciling a bank statement and then the next dancing the Charleston with residents. Also, I must say working in the Yorkshire Dales with a view like ours certainly doesn’t hurt . . . it’s beautiful.
