Champion person-centred care for older people and adults with physical disabilities.
At the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, we put local people at the heart of everything we do. Our Integrated Health and Social Care Team is at the forefront, delivering personalised care pathways built around the needs of individuals. From social workers to rehabilitation workers, occupational therapists and related support services, they all share your commitment to social inclusion and accessibility. You’ll play a leading role in promoting quality and best practice.
As an Advanced Practitioner Occupational Therapist, you’ll provide professional support, leadership and direction to the multi-disciplinary team. You’ll play a vital part in making sure older people and adults with physical disabilities have their voices heard, and benefit from care that offers choice and control to the individual. You’ll be supporting the team manager in the day to day running of the Reablement service and we’ll look to you to take a lead in identifying and managing risk, including supporting residents with moving, handling and safeguarding needs. You’ll help to manage and shape a front line duty service that facilitates dignity and independence, self-esteem and wellbeing, including to those with complex needs and where statutory interventions are necessary.
