Becoming a Dementia Friend & Companion has never been more important as it is now that we are entering the “stay alert” period. We are looking for people close to the Eastleigh area of Hampshire to help support the most vulnerable older adults in the local community and most importantly, make a difference at a time it is needed the most. However, It is essential that you are a car driver.

If you have been furloughed, want to change career, or someone with a caring heart who wants to help, then your community needs you especially during this phase of Covid. They will provide full training and flexible hours to work around your availability. If you can help, then we would love to hear from you.

Your role as a Dementia Friend & Companion will be varied depending on the individual needs of the person you are supporting. 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 elements of personal care involved but this would be no different to what you may do for a friend or relative.

Pay rates, hours & benefits

  • £10.60 per hour if you have NVQ level 3, £15.00 per hour at weekends.
  • Bank Holidays, Christmas and Easter £17.00 to £18 per hour.
  • Paid travel time at £8.72 per hour.
  • Flexible hours to suit your availability.
  • Pension scheme.
  • Making a positive difference to an older adult’s life.
