You could make a real difference … Do you have lived experience of caring for someone with dementia? Could you help another unpaid carer by sharing your experience?  We are looking to recruit Dementia Volunteer Mentors who will offer 1-2-1 support to carers who are new to their caring role following a recent diagnosis, or who may be struggling in their caring role.  The support will be via telephone, Zoom or even email (to suit the carer).  The sessions will be goal focused and volunteers will receive specific training around Goal Planning & Problem Solving using a CBT based approach.  If you can regularly spare 2-3 hours (Monday to Friday) a week or fortnightly during the day, we’d really like to hear from you. The service we provide covers Bristol and South Gloucestershire.  We provide induction, on-going training and support and phone expenses.
