About this opportunity
Central Adelaide Palliative Care Services (CAPCS) offers Complementary Therapies (such as massage) to patients, carers and bereaved persons. Services provided may include massage, aromatherapy, reflexology, relaxation techniques, meditation and energy work such as reiki and therapeutic touch. Massage is currently provided mainly to patients and carers in their home in the community.
If you are qualified and experienced in your particular field, mature, calm and reflective, able to use initiative and wish to learn more about practice in palliative care, network with others and personally benefit from the challenges and rewards of working with people facing a life limiting illness, we encourage you to make contact. If you wish to be involved in a palliative care team in this setting, please contact us.
