Why work for Claimont?
As a contractor or permanent member of the Claimont Clinical Team, you will have the opportunity to work one-to-one in a calm environment that feels secure for your client. Your experience will reflect in your practice as you see the resulting outcomes of your skills and expertise enabling our clients to use their strengths to improve their own well-being.
“I was previously in a challenging mental health role where I felt like I was not getting as much quality time with my patients as they needed. I had a large, changing caseload and often didn’t have the opportunity to stay with my patients until the end of their recovery. With my role at Claimont, I’m achieving what I went into nursing to do in the very beginning. I love supporting my clients in their own homes; they respond so well when they feel safe and secure. Seeing my clients on a live-in basis means I have time to work with them closely, which is something I haven’t been able to do for a long time. Working for Claimont gives me flexibility and time to spend with my family; I couldn’t be happier. The best part of my job is having the time to build strong relationships, gaining trust, and being able to see the difference I make.”
“I facilitate home visits at Claimont. My job is very varied. I sometimes support a client coming out of hospital by checking in on them daily. I begin to build a relationship with my client during those visits and, very importantly, their family. We work on achievable goals; one of those goals might be supporting the client with going out or giving support and encouragement on taking medication independently. I work closely with the client to gain a better understanding of their illness and look at how we can overcome some of the challenges together. If you were to ask me what the best part of my job is, it would have to be the quality time I spend with my client and their family; watching them from beginning to the end of treatment and seeing the positive outcome from our hard work.”
A Support Worker
“I work as a Support Worker on a live-in basis within Claimont. I am so lucky to be supported by such a great team. I love my work and really feel like I am making a difference. I haven’t felt like that in other roles. I feel valued by my colleagues and, more importantly, my patients. Working one-to-one, building a strong relationship; it’s everything I want.”
