About Peninsula At Home

Peninsula At Home is the leading initiative to move subacute and rehabilitation care into the home and community environment, and make home the first preference for care. Services are focused on shifting care out of the hospital setting and empowers people to optimise their recovery, function and quality of life.

Peninsula At Home delivers sub-acute rehabilitation (neurological, orthopaedic, general), geriatric evaluation and management and palliative care in the community setting; care that would otherwise have been delivered in a hospital bed.

What You Will Be Doing

The Grade 2 Social Work role will be working within the multidisciplinary subacute At Home team to achieve optimal rehabilitation outcomes for people in their homes and community settings. There is a strong emphasis on providing excellent evidenced based practice treatment, with a multidisciplinary team approach for person centred care. Care will be delivered within neurological, orthopaedic, general rehabilitation, GEM and palliative care streams. This social work role will also provide service to the Hospital in the Home stream, including patients on the At Home Cancer Care pathway.

What You Need

We anticipate you will have:

• Ability to competently perform high quality social work assessment, intervention and patient management across a range of caseloads
• Member or eligibility of the AASW
• Experience in the sub-acute or community settings
• Current Victorian drivers licence
