GeroPsych, Inc, and Key Rehabilitation joined forces to offer an integrated, holistic treatment for geriatric clients throughout Iowa. We are currently working with multiple Long Term Care Facilities in and around Des Moines to provide psychology services to the elders.
We are seeking a licensed psychologist with an interest in working with the current “greatest generation” as well as the coming flood of aging baby boomers. We have had a long-term relationship with The Eden Alternative, the leader in innovation in eldercare. The services are intended to promote growth and a re-kindling of a sense of purpose, not “waiting to die”. Our philosophy is that Elderhood is the culmination of a life of learning and experience, not a period of decline and despair.
We have part time positions available, even “very part time” for a few hours a week, working in the skilled nursing, long term care, and assisted living setting with a skilled social worker Clinical Assistant. This person assists the psychologist in focusing on productive interventions by freeing them from paperwork and chart review. This job will involve diagnostic interviewing and follow-up psychotherapy with elders who have psychiatric diagnoses and adjustment issues. This position entails very little take home work, on- call, etc. Geriatric psychology is a significant growth area as the baby boomers “come of age”. The work is unusually rewarding, both personally and professionally. We will provide testing equipment, necessary training, billing services, and a positive work environment that encourages a balanced lifestyle. A full benefits package is available if desired.
