An exciting opportunity has arisen within the Short Stay Unit and we are looking for an experienced, creative and highly motivated Advanced Occupational Therapist / Physiotherapist to join us.
The Short Stay Unit at St Columba’s provide an early intervention model of proactive support for people living with a palliative care diagnosis at home. The service offers regular individualised programmed interventions tailored to people's needs, delivered by the multi-professional team and is built around people’s goals.
The aim of the service is to ensure that people are able to live as they choose, be where they want to be, and access the resources and services that they need, so that they can live as independently as possible for as long as they can.
The successful candidate will provide practical social and emotional support both to the individual and those supporting them in the form of group sessions and 1:1 support.
This is a unique opportunity for the right person to join our innovative service at this crucial time. You will be passionate about palliative and modern hospice care; have a sound understanding and experience of assessing and responding to psycho-social needs, both individually and in group settings; and if successful, will play a key role in helping people live well as they approach the end of their life.
