The Caring Physio provides private physiotherapy services in people’s homes, care homes and brain injury units. Our company represents the values of caring for others and showing respect and dignity to the people we work for and with. We put patients at the heart of everything we do, which is reflected in the positive feedback we regularly receive. We only employ the highest calibre staff who are not only excellent clinically but also caring and friendly; show excellent communication and problem solving skills; who are willing to learn and teach others; can motivate others; work well with teams in challenging circumstances and have a positive impact. We are now looking for a Senior Neurological & Community Physiotherapist superstar to join our expanding team!
We are looking for an enthusiastic and experienced neurological / community physiotherapist to provide specialist neurological rehabilitation at a local brain injury unit and to visit people in their homes and care homes in the area providing community physiotherapy services including assessments, treatment plans, and treatment interventions. In this role you will work as an autonomous practitioner providing comprehensive neurological and general physiotherapy assessments, treatments and goal setting, maintaining high standards of clinical practice and working within a multi-disciplinary team. As you will work across various settings (neurological rehabilitation centre, community setting, care homes) your caseload will be varied including rehabilitating patients with complex neurological problems including traumatic brain injuries, as well as patients with strokes, dementia, Parkinsons’, arthritis, frailty, fractures and joint replacements, and falls. In the community setting you may see people only once following surgery through to long-term patients living with complex and long-term conditions, including frail older people. We expect you to draw upon your clinical knowledge and experience, applying neurological, elderly care, respiratory and orthopaedic treatment techniques.
As your caseload is varied, experience in all core rotations including experience in neurological rehabilitation across the clinical pathway as well as evidence of working with older people and as part of a multidisciplinary team is essential. We expect you to work alongside MDT members and to liaise with adult social care, carers and care managers as relevant. Our physiotherapists should display a diverse set of skills to be able to listen and comfort patients, provide up to date treatment plans, communicate with family and carers to ensure care plans are followed, coach carers on therapeutic manual handling, and look to improve the patient’s independence and quality of life. You will be professionally responsible for all aspects of your own work including the therapeutic management of patients in your care and the management of your caseload as an autonomous practitioner, with support from the Clinical Director.
We only employ physios who fit in with the culture of our company embracing people that show empathy and are caring, friendly and approachable and always show enthusiasm to help others and learn new things. You will join our forward-thinking team to deliver high quality patient care, tailored to meet the patient’s needs in the various settings where we work. We encourage staff to be innovative and willing to contribute to service development. You will need to be flexible, able to work alone and as part of a team and will be required to travel across our key work areas. The time spent travelling to appointments is considered part of your paid hours and you will also be provided a mileage allowance to cover associated travel costs.
Due to the sensitivity of working during the Covid crisis, we follow PPE protocol as determined by the Government and recommended by professional bodies.
