Contract
Job description
Dementia devastates lives. By 2021, 1 million people will be living with the condition. But dementia won't win. Until the day we find a cure, Alzheimer's Society will be here for anyone affected by dementia - wherever they are, whatever they're going through. Everything we do is informed and inspired by them.

Support Worker Responsibilities:

We are looking for an exceptional individual to join our Dementia Support Team predominately covering parts of East Cambridgeshire and Fenland but will include working across the whole of Cambridgeshire from time to time. This is a community based role.

The Dementia Support Service provides a highly responsive and individualised information, signposting and referral service to people affected by dementia. As a Dementia Support Worker you will assist people with dementia and their carers in identifying their needs, providing information and guidance to help maintain their independence, improving their sense of well-being, and putting them in more control of their lives. You will be part of a highly motivated and supportive team, sharing responsibility of some admin tasks, including duty telephone coverage.

You will build relationships with a range of local contacts. This will include networking with health and care professionals, marketing the Dementia Support Service and providing dementia support within GP practices to help people with a diagnosis get referred to the service as early as possible. You will also develop networks and pathways with partner organisations who work in the field of dementia, ensuring seamless and consistent support and empowering individuals affected by dementia to make informed choices. We provide support face-to-face, by telephone and online.

Support Worker Requirements:

We are looking for a highly motivated individual, with an understanding of dementia and the needs of people affected by dementia.

It is essential you have good communication skills to meet the diverse needs of our community and to represent their needs to statutory and other voluntary agencies. It is desirable that you have had some experience of working with these types of agencies. Your communication skills will also need to include efficient use of IT systems to record data, write reports and communicate by email. You will have an understanding of client confidentiality which includes how this is applied when representing client needs.

You will possess NVQ level 3 (or equivalent) or have demonstrable experience. You will be empathetic and non-judgmental in your approach with a commitment to equal opportunity. This role requires that you are able to travel independently.

If this sounds like you and you wish to apply for this role, then we look forward to receiving your application. So, don’t delay apply today!
