Dementia Day Opportunities Support Worker

Would you like to make a difference to someone living with dementia?

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our Dementia Day Opportunities Team as bank staff.

Age UK Coventry & Warwickshire are working in partnership with Warwickshire County Council to provide Dementia Day Opportunities. We provide a range of person-centred dementia support services for individuals with dementia and their carers with centres in:

  • Nuneaton
  • Atherstone
  • Rugby
  • Henley in Arden
  • Warwick

Dementia Day Opportunities provides a sociable atmosphere where engaging, fun activities are tailored to members; periods of quiet time are built in to meet the needs and preferences of each person. These include:

  • Arts and Crafts
  • Interesting and Interactive Activities and Stimulation
  • Socialising and Conversation
  • Games

We aim to encourage choice, independence, and improvement in quality of life. At our centres we provide a safe, caring, and secure environment – a “home from home” with the added opportunity to form new friendships and enjoy the company of local people from different backgrounds, and with varied skills and interests.

We are looking for part-time Support Workers to provide care and support to those who access our day opportunities, promoting choice, inclusion and independence at all times. You will be part of an enthusiastic and motivated staff team, providing emotional, social and personal support to individuals and groups. You will be allocated a central base but expected to cover (with notice) centres across the county.

This is a rewarding position for anyone who has a positive belief in their own ability to enrich the lives of others.

It is important that a candidate promotes a culture that values, protects and uses information for the success of the organisation and benefit of its clients/patients. The ability to work confidently and effectively in a diverse, and sometimes challenging environment is essential. You will have access to training, supervision, and regular Team meetings with your peers.

 Age UK Coventry and Warwickshire offers a contributory pension.

Staff benefits include:
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Blue Light Discount Card
  • Age UK Discount Portal
  • Tickets for Good
