About the Role
This is not your usual caring role. A Specialised Dementia Carer (SDC) provides personalised care to residents living with dementia, helping them to engage in all facets of life. This role is designed to reduce the need for multiple people to provide different aspects of care, which can lead to increased levels of confusion and agitation for a person living with dementia. The pivotal aspect of this role focuses on the building of a trusted relationship.
A Specialised Dementia Carer (SDC) role at HammondCare provides opportunities for residents to engage in activities of daily living, all personal and domestic tasks, leisure activities and wider community involvement.
We are looking for empathetic candidates who pride themselves on their experience in providing care and support to both residents and their families within the Aged Care Sector, who have the ability to communicate with a wide variety of people from the community and a genuine desire and passion in caring for people who are living with dementia. If you have the desire to care but have no experience, we would like to hear from you too.
As a Specialist Dementia Carer (SDC) with HammondCare you will demonstrate appropriate behaviour that encourages a calm, supportive and secure atmosphere. This role also requires you to be able to work as part of a team to ensure each resident’s dignity, self-respect and quality of life is promoted and maintained.
Due to operational requirements we are seeking applicants who have Full Working Rights in Australia.
