An exciting opportunity has arisen for an occupational therapist to join our team to work primarily within community settings in Perth and Kinross.

From our hub base within Psychiatry of Old Age at Murray Royal Hospital, we provide occupational therapy within both inpatient and community settings. We work flexibly to provide equitable service covering all localities within the Perth and Kinross HSCP, with staff working in rural community settings, Perth City, and acute services.

We provide specialist occupational therapy to older adults with mental illness, including dementia. Our practice is holistic in its person centred approach when working with people who often have co morbidities and complex mental health, cognitive and physical health needs. We focus on rehabilitation, recovery and empowerment, helping people to achieve the best possible outcomes through collaboration, and carer involvement.

We use occupation as the foundation of our work with people as a basis for bringing value and purpose to their lives. This may involve the use of specialist assessment, current evidence based treatments, or techniques to support decision making, goal achievement, empowerment through independence and recovery where possible. We strive to push the boundaries of our own practice to ensure we are innovative and up to date.

The successful post holder will work from the HUB base at Murray Royal Hospital and will provide occupational therapy across the South Perthshire Locality area, working closely with multidisciplinary colleagues in the older people's community mental health teams.
