Do you want to work for an established and respected local mental health charity?
Solent Mind is the leading mental health charity across Hampshire providing a range of high quality services to improve people’s mental wellbeing and to promote choice and rights to everyone who needs our support. Our services operate in various locations throughout the Hampshire area.
Portsmouth Integrated Commissioning Unit has commissioned Solent Mind (Lead Provider) together with Rowans Hospice and SCA Group to deliver a service to meet the needs of people with dementia and their carers in Portsmouth. The service supports people from diagnosis to end of life.
As an Intensive Engagement Support Worker you will work with key stakeholders, and in particular the Dementia Specialist Nurse, to enable people to maximise their potential and quality of life and live as independently as possible for as long as possible.
You will support the reduction of admissions and re-admissions into acute care (i.e. hospital) from the community, preventing escalation of need or deterioration in health and reducing the level of reliance on, or size of packages of care.
