Falkirk’s Joint Dementia Initiative is currently looking for Adult Placement Carers to support within the Falkirk area.
“Home from Home” is a service run by Falkirk Council, supporting groups of 4 – 5 people with dementia to meet together in an ordinary domestic home for the day to make new friends, chat, have lunch and access local community resources.
Working as an Adult Placement Carer you would either open up your own family home or work alongside one of the Initiative’s existing Carers in their own home.
Adult Placement Carers work on a self- employed basis reflecting the home and family orientated nature of the service. In return you receive fees, expenses, training, and support.
The kind of attributes you would bring would be flexibility, adaptability, energy and equally as important you would have a caring, friendly nature and the time and willingness to offer short periods of support.
If you feel you are suited to this role please contact either Margaret Thom or Shirley Macdonald on 01324 501730 for more information.
