North West Carers Centre – Side By Side Dementia Service
Due to increased demand on services North West Carers Centre is looking to recruit to the post of Part-time Support Worker.
The Side By Side Project provides support to carers of people living with Dementia, or Cognitive Impairment through either face to face, or telephone contact and by organising and facilitating information, educational, recreational and practical courses for carers and events where the carers and the person they care for can attend together.
The role includes working co-operatively and effectively with the Carer Practitioner (Dementia) and volunteer team to provide a quality support service to carers and the person they care for, who are affected by Dementia, or Cognitive Impairment.

The ability to participate in and lead group activities is desirable.
