Part-Time Dementia Friend & Companion, Tavistock, Devon – No Experience Needed – We offer Award Winning Training – however you do need to BE A CAR DRIVER with your own car.

It is a pleasure knowing there are people like you that love nothing more than caring for others and brightening someone’s day. After all, there is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone smile and making their lives that bit easier, sometimes by doing the simplest of things.

Caring in your Community

If you live in the communities of Plymouth, Tavistock, Torpoint, Saltash, or nearby surrounding areas of Devon, then we would love to welcome you to the team.

Who will I support?

You will be carefully matched and introduced to the person you will be supporting, and you will share a great relationship together.  Your visits will never be rushed, and they are never less than an hour, meaning you spend quality time with the person we match you with.  Because you get to know one another well, the care that you would provide is never awkward, just natural. 

As a Dementia Friend & Companion, the Care & Support an individual requires varies greatly, after all everyone is unique!  All our clients vary from being very independent, to some that need much more care and support.

“After spending almost 20 years working in the travel industry, during the first lockdown I decided I needed a career change and wanted to try something completely different, with a focus on helping people. I have enjoyed my first three months here so much. I have loved working with a variety of lovely clients and have felt hugely supported by everyone in the office and in the field. The communication between everyone is fantastic, and on a scale, I’ve never experienced before in the workplace. I thought I would like it as I enjoy meeting new people and helping elderly relatives, and I have found it to be an extremely enjoyable and gratifying job and I feel sense of achievement after each shift. I have met some great people with interesting stories to tell which I love! It is so rewarding to know that we are making a difference to the lives of our clients and their families, and to be acknowledged for this work is so humbling and makes it all so worthwhile.” Sue, Dementia Friend & Companion.
