Job title: Support Worker

Applications close on date: Monday 19 June noon

Job summary: YoungDementia UK, an award-winning charity supports Oxfordshire’s working-age people with dementia and their families to live well.

Job type – part-time/permanent/flexible hours
Location – Banbury/Thame/West and Central Oxfordshire

Developing a strong, long-term relationship with the younger person with dementia and knowing them well is the key to success in this role. You will offer individually -tailored, active support sessions each week to several people, with positive content as diverse as their needs and wishes – practical, leisure, emotional, physical, creative, social and so on – adapting according to the progression of the dementia.

You will need to be non-judgemental, calm, flexible, empathic and reliable – and that is just the start – this can be a challenging, deeply satisfying role.

You will be building self-esteem, being a reassuring presence through sad and difficult times, creating joyful moments – all whilst being alongside the person and their unique experience of dementia. There is also the possibility of hosting groups for people with young onset dementia with different activities.

Our experience tells us that around 6 support sessions x 3 hours per week work well so 9 hours/week is a starting point. We would like the majority of support roles to achieve this, with flexibility.

Induction, on-going training and supervision are provided.

YoungDementia UK team work from home bases, utilising an e-office and you will need to have your own access to the internet and be reasonably confident and competent with e-communication – support is provided.

Start a Conversation: Oxfordshire Loneliness Summit

This summit has been rearranged to Friday the 14th July – please see message below from Age Concern Oxfordshire.  More information will be circulated. 
 
In light of GE2017 and the risk of falling foul of the Lobbying Act  we have reluctantly taken the decision that we must postpone our Summit.
 
The venue have been exceptionally accommodating and offered 14th July as an alternative date, which Nicola Blackwood, Hannah Pearce and Paul Cann are all able to do.  
 
Apologies for messing your diaries around and grateful for your patience on this.
