Getting the best care can sometimes be more challenging for families when there are other factors affecting their needs and access to support. Some families from Black, Asian and other diverse communities may experience stigma and discrimination due to a lack of understanding of dementia within their cultural group, family or wider support networks. In addition, they may be unaware of the support available, and how to access it. This may also lead to a reluctance to seek a diagnosis or get help.

As part of Dementia UK’s strategic plan to develop dedicated support to diverse communities, Dementia UK in collaboration with the Chinese Welfare Trust is looking for a Cantonese speaking registered nurse with experience of supporting families from diverse communities.

Purpose of job

The Clinic Admiral Nurse will work within the clinics team at Dementia UK and, in collaboration with the Chinese Welfare Trust, will offer expert support and guidance to carers or family members from Chinese/South East Asian backgrounds affected by dementia living in the five London boroughs, Camden, Brent, Barnet, Westminster and Tower Hamlets.

The Admiral Nurse will be responsible for delivering clinic sessions to support families affected by dementia across these five London boroughs that have requested an appointment using the booking system. The Admiral Nurse will provide one off appointments (that can be re-booked) to families via telephone, video consultation or face to face within the agreed setting.

About you

  • You are a registered nurse who is fluent in English and Cantonese (both written and oral)
  • You have experience and passion for supporting families affected by dementia from diverse communities
  • You are able to travel around London on a regular basis
