About Cedar Lawn

Cedar Lawn was built in 1970 by Mr E.K. Youell of Stratford, and opened in association with the Sheldon Trust. In 1997, an extension was added, gifted by the Youell Foundation in memory of the home's founder and of his son-in-law, Roy Bamford. Mr Youell had managed the home himself for its first five years but passed it over to MHA on New Year's Day, 1975.

Cedar Lawn, claims one resident, is like Mary Poppins: practically perfect in every way. Another says that MHA's Stratford Home is well named "because a cedar tree is expansive and caring. It shelters you from the elements."

What are the responsibilities of the Care Assistant?

You will be responsible for supporting older people to live their daily lives to the full, assisting with their physical and personal needs to enhance each individual's well-being.

What skills do I need to have to become a Care Assistant?

We are looking for people who are flexible in their approach and sensitive to the needs of residents therefore you must enjoy the company of older people and work well as part of a team. Previous experience is desirable but the right approach and willingness to undertake full training is more important.
