Job Description

Becoming a Dementia Friend and Companion is such a rewarding role within your community. You will visit older people in their own homes and carry out a variety of duties. No two days are ever the same. If you think about everything you do daily, you would be supporting someone to do the same. The role may involve:

  • Providing companionship.
  • Helping with domestic duties.
  • Assisting with shopping and helping to prepare meals.
  • Helping with any medication.
  • Assisting with personal care, but in many cases, this would be no different to what you may do for a friend or close relative.
