This is an exciting opportunity to ensure the delivery of high quality person-centred services for people affected by dementia across Calderdale. Responsible for recruitment, development and performance management, you will line manage an established team of skilled Dementia Support Workers and Advisers.
The team provides one-to-one support, information and guidance to everyone affected by dementia including carers, family members and friends, helping people understand dementia, cope with day to day living and prepare for the future.
With the support of dedicated volunteers, the team also delivers activity groups including a popular weekly dementia cafe and runs information programmes that support carers and those living with dementia.
You will help to raise public awareness locally about dementia and the way it affects families and individuals.
