This is a rare opportunity to join an innovative start up. We are looking to recruit a kind, compassionate, energetic person to join a company that is truly innovating within dementia community care.

The successful candidate/s needs to have outstanding communication skills, a passion for elderly care and willingness to develop and undertake further education. The successful applicant will be joining a small team in setting up and running the first activity centre for families and individuals living with dementia. The centre is designed to be a community hub; helping individuals stay independent and engaged in their community through out the illness trajectory and looking after families during the illness.

The role is an opportunity for the successful candidate to learn how to manage this complex illness. You would be expected to be flexible in the role which will involve both traditional care work with disabled adults and enabling those with dementia. Dementia care experience is desirable but not essential, however, you do need experience caring for older adults.

As well as a competitive salary the successful applicant would:

·Be trained as a specialist in dementia care

·Funded to complete accredited training in elderly care

·Opportunity to learn to lead different therapies

·Pension support

Looking for part-time position.
