Job description

Age UK Kensington and Chelsea

We promote the wellbeing of older people through:

  • Providing services which support independence
  • Learning from this experience to inform our understanding of older people's needs
  • Ensuring the voices of older people in Kensington & Chelsea are heard

Working in close collaboration with other organisations to achieve these aims

Age UK Kensington & Chelsea offers dementia services which make a real difference to residents affected by the condition living in the Borough. Those services include advice, practical help, befriending, social activities and emotional support.

The Dementia Support Worker is responsible for managing a caseload of individual clients, providing practical and emotional support to the most isolated and vulnerable in our community. The support takes the form of weekly or bi-weekly visits to the client’s home which can be directed by the client’s wishes or needs.

This role requires the worker to work independently and manage their own caseload.

With other members of the Dementia Services team, the Dementia Support Worker will also help with transport, group activities or trips, events, training and local forums.

 

**Please note, this role may involve working some Out of Hours shifts, covering evenings and weekends**


To apply:

Please email a CV and supporting statement (that addresses all the essential criteria) to our Recruitment dept. Contact details may be found on our site. CVs submitted without a supporting statement will not be considered. You may also apply via Charity Job. Due to the volume of applications we will only be able to respond to shortlisted candidates.

Please read the attached job description for further details on the role.

Interviews are to be held on Zoom
