About the role
 
Location: Community based in North/East Hampshire, with some homeworking elements. Occasional cover may be needed for all areas of Hampshire.

We are currently searching for a compassionate and dedicated team member for a rewarding opportunity as a Dementia Adviser. The successful individual will have the exciting opportunity to provide support and guidance to people with dementia and their carers in areas of North and East Hampshire; helping to maintain their independence, improving their sense of well-being, and putting them in more control of their lives. Our service is unique to each service user, created upon their personal circumstances and support needs. As a Dementia Adviser, you will offer knowledgeable support and guidance to your clients, that maybe in their own home, out in the community, by phone, letter, or email. You will also assist service users to access other services, providing signposting and referrals. The role will also include occasionally the running of our Singing for the Brain, where you will coordinate a team of passionate and committed  volunteers and a Singing leader. 

We would love to speak to people with a professional understanding of supporting people with dementia – but it’s not essential! Most importantly, we are looking for a person who wants to be part of a fantastic team creating a supportive environment to help people affected by dementia.
 
About you

  • The role requires excellent non-judgmental communication skills, as well as great organisational and time management skills so you are able to manage your workload effectively across a wide geographical area.
  • Notes, documents and personal information is logged on our database, so a good working knowledge of emails, word, excel and experience working with databases are also essential.
 
Closing Date: 3rd June 2024.
