Activity Co-ordinator's Assistant at Dementia Day Care Centre

We have an opportunity for the right person to join in and initiate activities in our Dementia Day Centre in Vange, Basildon. You will be working alongside experienced staff and have the opportunity to enjoy the company of some lovely elderly people who are living with Dementia. You will be able to learn how to get them to engage in activities to stimulate their minds, you will be able to dance and sing along with them and do something really worthwhile and rewarding.

Our day care centre is open on Tuesdays and Fridays but even if you can only help on one of the days we would love to hear from you.

Skills

Personality is the key to this role ! An understanding and empathy with the elderly and the dedication to do something which is going to make a difference to someone's enjoyment of their day with us is essential. We do not expect volunteers to do personal care but just be able to use their initiative and be proactive in helping the trained staff in the day centre. Full DBS check to enhanced level will be undertaken and must come back clear
