Occupational Therapist – West London

Occupational Therapist – West London

Community Occupational Therapist  – Home to Decide Model
Salary to be negotiated
West London
4 Days on/4 Days off (8am – 8pm)

Hilton Nursing Partners are very excited to be setting up our well-established Home to Decide service in West London and are looking for Occupational Therapists to join our team to implement and work as part of our Outstanding CQC rated service.

This service sees patients that have been in the hospital for a long period of time and are on the verge of needing possibly residential home placements. Pathways are created to enable them to come home and decide with us and social services whether it can work at home and allows them time to settle within their own environment.

This model supports one patient over a 2-week pathway, whereby the first 72 hours a 24-hour wrap around care service is provided over day and night. This enables the team to establish a clearer picture of the Patient’s needs, seeing a decrease in calls after this time.

This role is without a doubt diverse in nature. The role will expect the candidate to complete reactive therapeutic assessments and patient-centred interventions. These in turn will contribute to support and facilitate the ongoing enablement and safety of potentially vulnerable individuals in their own homes following recent hospital discharge.

The role will also encourage professional autonomy, develop rapid clinical reasoning and integrity. In addition, to build relationships and refer on to other organisations where necessary. The candidate will also work closely with office-based staff, Nurses, Personal Nursing Assistants and Assessors to provide professional support on best practice to empower individuals under Hilton Nursing Partners’ care.

We are looking for a motivated individual seeking a fast-paced challenge to begin, or enhance your Occupational Therapy toolkit, with the opportunity to further develop services and above all to make an impact to typically older adults transitioning back into life at home.
