Age UK West Sussex, Brighton & Hove, is an independent local charity working in the community to help older people, their families and their carers.
Our vision is to inspire and enable people in West Sussex, Brighton & Hove to Love Later Life. To do this, we provide an array of services and activities that meet the needs and interests of the communities we support, providing opportunities for people to get out, have fun, socialise and build friendships. It really is a great place to work if you really want to make a difference in people's lives.
We are looking for a dynamic and enthusiastic individual to join one of our established Dementia Day Support Services. You will be helping support clients living with Dementia, who access our day support services, as well as providing personal care support where required. Your role will be to encourage our members to actively take part in activities that are meaningful to them, which in turn helps promote mental and physical stimulation. This role will give you an opportunity to join a welcoming and dynamic team, with the aim of providing a safe, fun and stimulating environment for our members.
You will be motivated by being part of an exceptional team that works tirelessly to improve the lives of people affected by dementia. You will be an excellent team player and people affected by dementia will be at the heart of every action you take and decisions you make.
If you genuinely want to do something that makes a significant, positive difference to older people’s lives and you’re ready for a new challenge then we would like to hear from you!
