About the role
We have an exciting and rewarding opportunity available for a Dementia Support Worker to join our team within the North West Sussex region.
Our Dementia Support Workers provides high quality tailored information and support to anyone affected by dementia in the way they need it, when they need it:
You will have the rewarding opportunity to provide support and guidance to people with dementia and their carers; helping to maintain their independence, improving their sense of well-being, and putting them in more control of their lives. The service is unique to each service user as it is based upon their personal circumstances and support needs.
Additionally, you’ll be required to manage referrals, assisting clients in assessing their information and support needs. You’ll maintain and manage a caseload of clients who have dementia or are affected by dementia from appropriate geographical locations. Information and support may be by phone, email, letter, or face to face, at the client’s home or other appropriate location.
The successful candidate will be required to undertake an enhanced DBS.
Please note, that for home-working roles, we require a reliable WiFi connection and a minimum 10Mb/s broadband.
(For our home-working employees, we currently offer a home-working allowance of £26 pounds a month (full-time).)
