We are looking for a nurse who is passionate about dementia who has an interest in using this to continue the development of the Admiral Nurse service in NAViGO CIC. The service offers support to families and carers of people with dementia and is part of the older peoples carers support service. You will carry an active caseload of carers with varying and potentially complex needs at different time points during their caring role, assisting them to develop more confidence and skills in caring, offering support during times of particular stress and transition which can be pre or post diagnosis, or beyond bereavement. You may work with several members of the family where there is more than one carer. Skills in counselling and group work are an advantage in this post. Some conference, teaching and presentation work is part of this role and the post-holder will either have or be prepared to develop these skills.
The post-holder will join the national network of Admiral Nurses and will benefit from the practice development framework for Admiral Nursing provided by Dementia UK. This offers practice development, facilitated clinical supervision, training and education opportunities and support with research, evaluation and audit.
For an informal conversation about the role please contact Charlotte Harris-Sutton, Business Development Officer.
We’ve developed a free online course for registered nurses to find out more about the role of Admiral Nurses. This will be of particular interest to those considering applying for a post and career in Admiral Nursing
