Physiotherapist jobs

Our Physiotherapists provide specialist assessments, clinical diagnoses and interventions to support people to achieve their goals, whether that’s maintaining optimal muscle function, limiting/delaying deterioration or regaining movement and mobility where possible.

In this role, you’ll work with the same team and service users to ensure continuity of care. Our homes are relatively small in size, which means that you’ll have sufficient time to make a real difference to the lives of those in your care.

Being a Physiotherapist with us is extremely rewarding. You’ll see the difference you make each and every day, which provides great job satisfaction.

What does a Physiotherapist do?

As a Physiotherapist at Exemplar Health Care, you’ll provide a high quality physiotherapy service to support our service users to maximise their independence and build their everyday living skills.

You’ll work with the wider Care and Clinical Team to create person-centred care plans, support people to achieve their physiotherapy goals and evaluate their outcomes.

Your approach will depend on the people you support, which may include those living with brain injuries, neuro-disabilities, spinal injuries or physical disabilities.

One of the things that our Physiotherapists tell us they love the most about working with us, is that every day is different!

Meet Helen, Physiotherapist at Tyne Grange

Following years in private practice, Helen joined Tyne Grange care home two years ago and loves the person-centred nature of the role.

She shares: “Typically, I have five or six physiotherapy sessions each day. I assess and provide treatment for anybody who has physical needs. We also do group exercise classes to make things fun. The people who live at Tyne Grange tend to be younger adults who are keen to go out into the community, so we facilitate that too.

“In this role, you can make a big difference to people’s lives. You’re responsible for improving their quality of life and empowering them to be more independent. It’s extremely rewarding.”
