Carer Support Worker - Dementia

  • Full time
  • £27,602.52
  • Hybrid: Kirkcaldy
  • Closing 17th June 2024

  • Advertised from 30th May 2024


Fife Carers Centre is a well-regarded and well-established organisation that has supported thousands of families and unpaid carers throughout Fife since 1995. The vision of Fife Carers Centre is to ensure that unpaid carers throughout Fife are valued, recognised, and supported to have equal access to a good quality of life that is not prejudiced by their caring role.

You will be based at the Fife Carers Centre in Kirkcaldy, but you will also be working from home and in the community, as part of normal work, you will be expected to travel throughout Fife, particularly West Fife.

Your work will include providing a sensitive, person-centred support service for unpaid and family carers. You’ll be assisting carers to maintain their physical and mental well-being by providing carers with a comprehensive information service to enable them to make informed choices about their own emotional, physical, and economic well-being. This will include giving one-to-one support to carers so that they know how to access services helping them to develop self-advocacy and, where necessary, advocating on the carer’s behalf.

You’ll be supporting carers to identify and achieve their own outcomes using the Carer Support Planning process and providing carers with a benefit check, assisting with benefit applications, and very importantly providing a listening ear for carers.
