Hillside Pines Partnership

Thinking About a Career in Healthcare?

Interested in a career with endless employment opportunities and free tuition for training? Due to the increasing number of aging Canadians, Continuing Care Assistants  (CCAs) are in high demand in Nova Scotia. The need for CCAs is only expected to rise and create more career opportunities in the future. Being a CCA is fulling work and with a strong employment outlook working as a CCA has never been more advantageous!

Right now, the Nova Scotia government is providing funding to select healthcare facilities to train individuals who see themselves working in this meaningful and important role in Healthcare. Training is delivered by Eastern College in partnership with the chosen long-term care facilities.

Hillside Pines have been selected to partner with Eastern College to provide free CCA training. Call Susan Hunt at 506-285-4989 to reserve your seat!

About Hillside Pines

Centrally located in the Town of Bridgewater, Hillside Pines is aptly named owing to its wonderful, natural setting. We take great pride in the quality of our community, the professionalism and friendliness of our care partners, and the quality of life we offer to our many Elders. As part of our ongoing efforts to improve and enhance our Elder's lives, Hillside Pines has successfully passed level one on our road towards becoming an Eden Alternative community. This principle-based philosophy empowers all care partners (employees, family members, volunteers, community partners and the Elders themselves) to transform institutional approaches of care into caring communities where life is worth living.
