About the role

We are seeking Registered Nurses for both our James Watson Centre and our Home Care Service.  The James Watson Centre is home for up to 40 men at any given time who have experienced chronic homelessness, including some who have aged prematurely as a result of their experiences with homelessness. Residents range in age from those in their 50’s to those in their 90’s. Many James Watson Centre residents, either as a result of their past experiences with homelessness and/or their age, have complex needs and benefit from the blend of clinical and trauma-informed support the facility and our staff provide.

Our Home Care Service plays a vital part in supporting older people to remain living independently in their own homes and encourage them to engage within the community.
