Dementia Friend & Companion - Job Description

We have job vacancies for natural carers, people who really want to make a difference in their local community. All the people we support are still living in their own homes, it is wonderful that you can support them to continue to live as independently as possible whilst keeping them safe in the place they love the most, their home. The role will include:

  • Helping them with daily routines such as getting up in the morning or ready for bed at night.
  • Helping with elements of personal care.
  • Ensuring their home is safe & clean.
  • Preparing meals & collecting shopping or prescriptions.
  • Providing companionship and being someone who they can rely on for support.

Be part of a service that will value you, but also be part of a company to be proud of. A job where you can go home every day and say, “I made a difference to someone’s day today.” If this is what you want, then this Dementia Friend & Companion role is for you.

Welcome to our Team

You would be working for an award-winning, family run company opened by cousins over 3 years ago who were inspired by the treasured memories of their Nan and the care she received whilst living with Dementia in her own home. They wanted to establish a high-quality home care service in the local area, promoting independence, happiness, and dignity for their clients. It is refreshing to see that this is still very much a family company, all holding the same values and fantastic ethos, providing fantastic support to clients and all their team.
