We are excited to offer you the opportunity to join our Young Onset Dementia (YOD) service on the 14 bed St Barruc inpatient ward in Barry Hospital as a Qualified Staff nurse
Dementia presents differently in younger age people. Our YOD service provides support to patients and their families from the early diagnosis stages of dementia. Patients are often still of working age with school-age children, so therapeutic and emotional support to families is essential alongside good clinical care.
There are very few dedicated Younger Onset Dementia multi-disciplinary teams within the NHS in the UK. Within Cardiff and Vale UHB our Young Onset Dementia team includes nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychology, dementia care advisor and medical staff.
The aim of the Young Dementia Service is to work collaboratively with people diagnosed with young onset dementia and their families, delivering high quality person focused support and ensuring continuity of care and responsiveness to often rapidly changing physical, psychological and social needs.
The ability to speak Welsh is desirable for this post; Welsh and/or English speakers are equally welcome to apply.
Closing date: 3rd March 2021
