View Vacancy -- Occupational Therapist (Reablement)
An opportunity has arisen in the Support @ Home (Intermediate Care and Reablement) for a permanent Occupational Therapist.
You will become part of the Support @ Home Team. The team is based in Ty Elai and provides service users with an opportunity to recover from ill health and prevent episodes of health deterioration where possible.
Sometimes following a spell in hospital, people can lose confidence and be worried about their safety and ability to cope at home. Intermediate Care Services offers service users reassurance and encouragement to maintain, regain or learn basic living skills, providing support to enable people to reach their full potential whilst preventing or reducing the need to move onto longer-term community services.
The post will be required to ensure that individuals are supported in the community through a 6 week programme to become as independent as possible. The service has the benefit of a variety of staff including Care Staff, supervisors, administrators, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, an Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA), and Assistant Therapy Practitioners (ATP) supported by a Team Lead.
You will be a qualified OT who has experience of providing Clinical supervision for staff or students. Ideally you will have proven experience in a community setting, however consideration will be given to candidates who have had community experience as part of their training or work experience. You will carry a case load and provide supervision and support for allocated members of staff, you will in turn receive supervision and support from the Team Manager. Full support, training and CPD opportunities will be provided for the successful candidate to develop skills and practice and to assist developing practice and information needs.
The service is going to be undergoing a change and there will be some occasional requirements to work evenings and Weekends, including bank holidays.
