Job description
  • Sessional Dementia Support Workers

  • Location: Covering London Boroughs of Bromley and Bexley

Help people with dementia to live well in their homes and communities, in a rewarding job with a local charity, supporting local people. MindCare Dementia Support is looking for Dementia Support Workers to support people living with dementia across Bromley borough, with a particular need in Orpington and surrounding areas.

You will be required to work in people’s homes for sessions of 3-4 hours at a time and up to two sessions per day. This may involve:

  • engaging clients in activities to help them maintain everyday skills
  • support with daily living activities

You will need to wear PPE (mask, gloves and apron) in clients’ homes

You will be spending quality time, building trusting relationships, providing one-to-one support to people with dementia and, in many cases, giving family carers a much needed break.

We provide a respite service 7 days a week from 8:00 am – 11:00 pm.

What We Need From You

The qualities we are looking for include:

  • good communication skills
  • patience
  • sensitivity
  • reliability
  • flexibility
  • ability to use initiative

You will have an interest, and perhaps some personal or work experience, in supporting older people. A full driving licence, use of a car and knowledge of the local areas are essential.

Successful applicants will be expected to:

  • Undergo an Enhanced level Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check
  • Attend a 3-day induction
  • Attend a number of core training courses over a two to three week period after induction
  • Attend staff meetings, supervisions and appraisals on Zoom

We Can Offer You

  • Regular work depending on your availability
  • Mileage costs and holiday pay
  • A full induction and ongoing training and regular supervision
  • High level of job satisfaction, working as part of a committed team.

We recognise the importance of having a diverse and inclusive work force, and would therefore particularly welcome applications from the following, currently under-represented, groups:

  • People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds
  • People aged 16-25
  • Disabled people
  • People with diverse sexual orientations and gender identities

BLG Mind is committed to meeting the reasonable adjustments of disabled people.

BLG Mind always welcomes applications from people with lived experience of mental health problems.
