Kōrero mō te tūranga - About the role
Due to an expansion in our service we have several roles available in our team for Rehab/Allied Health Assistants to join our Advancing Wellness at Home Initiative (AWHI Team). AWHI help patients recover at home after they have been in hospital. Allied Health Assistants in AWHI carry out a wide range of tasks to support people to become more independent. The role is varied and may include activities such as supporting patients with activities of daily living (including personal cares), exercises programmes, installing adaptive equipment and providing health related education. You will mostly work with patients who have had a recent injury and will provide support in the patient - s own homes. Training will be provided and the role is well supported with all tasks being delegated. There are multiple roles available and we are looking for candidates who are willing to work in a rostered rotating model. The team will likely be covering from hours 07.30am till 8pm and shift times will be varied dependent on the needs of the service. As we are a new and developing service the roster model may change over time to enable patients to receive the care they need.
Mō tō mātou rōpū - About our team
