Mental Health Services for Older People are recruiting enthusiastic people who want to work with older people who have a range of mental health conditions.

You will have experience of working within health and/or social care providing direct personal care.

The Assessment and Recovery Unit is piloting a seven day service in order to provide a new enhanced service model that undertakes  high intensity, recovery focused assessments and interventions for community dwelling older people, that previously may have required hospital admission, as well as supporting early discharge from our wards for those people who would benefit from this service.

You will be part of a multi-disciplinary team and your role will be to carry out person centred care and activities as designated by a qualified staff member. Activities may be 1:1 or group work and will be related to activities of daily living and/or therapeutic interventions. These may take place within ARU or a community setting, therefore you will be confident to work without direct supervision and you will be able to travel across locations within Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan.

The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.

Closing date: 26th November 2020.
