Day Hospital - Health Care Support Worker
Working within Day Hospital Services is enjoyable and very rewarding, supporting clients to maximise their potential and striving to maintain their independence. Day Services engage clients in creative, therapeutic and recreational activities to assist with recovery, building confidence and self esteem. Day Services consists of two sites - Grand Avenue and Assessment and Recovery Unit (ARU). Grand Avenue is a new integrated service offering Health and Social Services care in one site in the community. The service supports continued assessment and respite for individuals and their carers who have a diagnosis of dementia and are at the moderate to advanced stages with high care needs and/or with behaviours that challenge. Staff will be expected on occasions to undertake service user escort duties both into and home from Grand Avenue. ARU is the fast track assessment unit and individuals are referred to this service due to a deterioration of their mental health that requires an intense period of assessment. ARU is a day hospital developed to focus on a full holistic assessment of individuals over the age of 65 with mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, psychosis and dementia. This involves providing group and individual support, promoting health and wellbeing. HCSW's will be given training, support and supervision to develop these skills. The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
