The Hub provides comprehensive person-centred support to people with dementia and their carers, alongside training, raising awareness and community development to improve the experience of people with dementia.
Dementia Advisors provide advice and person centred individual support, including signposting and community bridge building to help people access community resources. With experience of working in health or social care, including in community based services, you will have good communication skills with assessment and support planning skills.
