In partnership with Dementia UK, we are looking to add to our team of successful and highly-valued Admiral Nurse Service and are now looking to appoint an Admiral Nurse Practitioner in Somerset.
You will work with and support families and carers of people with dementia, by using a range of interventions to help people live positively with the condition and develop skills to improve communication and maintain relationships. Working collaboratively with other professionals, Admiral Nurse Practitioners seek to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their carers.
We are looking for someone who has the compassion, focus and desire to become real ambassadors for dementia care. Based at home, you will provide a peripatetic service, visiting people in their homes and community settings.
The successful candidate will support the Lead Admiral Nurse in providing this service. You will be a RMN or RGN (with an accredited dementia qualification) and have had a minimum 2 years post qualification experience in dementia care and experience of working with carers of people with dementia and their families.
Your professional development will be additionally supported by Dementia UK’s comprehensive practice development framework which includes monthly facilitated peer group supervision and practice development session.
