About the role
Our brand new Residential Aged Care service opened in February and we are filling up fast. We now need a second Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist to join our growing team and family of residents.
You will be involved in the implementation and continuous promotion of wellness and restorative care programs, exercise based interventions and falls prevention. Aligned with the organizational 'positive wellbeing' model of care you will improve and maintain the mobility and independence of our residents. Some of the residents you will look after for years to come and the relationships you build with them and their families will be both meaningful and significant. You will also devise and deliver education programs based on the needs of the aged care sites and advise and educate staff on manual handling techniques appropriate to individual residents. Working with a dedicated team you will be practicing a holistic model of care. This is a fantastic opportunity to make a real difference.
You are often commended on your enthusiasm, imagination, creativity and the ability to form relationships with a wide variety of people. With the ability to prioritise and manage workloads according to resident's needs, you are able to work independently and as part of a multi-disciplined work team.
Your experience and qualifications for the role should include:
- Current AHPRA registration as a Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist and current police clearance or the ability to obtain;
- Excellent communication and interpersonal skills;
- Demonstrated time management skills and the ability to work within a multi-skilled team;
- Current Senior First Aid certificate is highly desirable.
Aged care experience is preferred though not essential as you will be supported by an experienced team and very supportive management.
Importantly, you will be someone who closely aligns with our organizational values of: modelling unconditional love; behaving with integrity; and being good stewards.
