Are you an enthusiastic, passionate, experienced professional who would like to be part of developing and shaping an exciting new service for the Alzheimer’s Society? The Side by Side service is key to building this supportive community, by offering meaningful companionship regardless of where someone lives.
We already know that Side By Side has helped people with dementia to meet new people or catch up with old friends, enabled them to do things they enjoy – and for some, to try new things. The role of the Side by Side Coordinator calls for a good understanding of dementia and proven ability to collaborate with partners both internal and external. You will work across health and social care with a range of professionals to develop the service in accordance with the needs of the people we support.
Excellent organisational skills are essential, and experience of working with statutory and voluntary agencies will be of huge benefit. As Side By Side reflects the needs of the people we support, you will be required to work flexible hours which could include evenings and weekends.
