Vacancy - Single

Helping Hand currently has five vacancies in our Memory Support Unit at our North Adelaide care home. Three of these vacancies would suit a female applicant only. 

This fully accredited facility offers accommodation for 155 people and the majority of rooms overlook the gardens. All rooms are comfortably furnished with electric beds, built-in wardrobes, lockable storage, fabric curtains and carpet. In addition, each room is fitted out with wide doors, a nurse call point and an individually controlled air conditioning system. Everyone is encouraged to personalise their rooms with furniture or belongings that are special to them. If you choose, you can also have a telephone, personal computer or bar fridge installed in your room.

As well as the need to have Aged Care Assessment approval, South Australian law also requires that anyone who moves in to a secure Memory Support Unit also needs to have Special Powers Orders in place, which can be applied for through the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT): https://www.sacat.sa.gov.au/get-started/guardianship/special-powers
