The Filo Project is a not-for-profit social enterprise offering high quality small group day care for older people across Devon and South Somerset. Our service is primarily for those who are socially isolated and may also be experiencing symptoms associated with early to moderate dementia, including memory loss. Small groups give the time and space for people to feel at ease and form friendships. We are an expanding organisation and we are looking for more hosts who are willing to welcome small groups of older people into their own homes in the following areas:

Mid Devon: Crediton

Teignbridge: Teignmouth and Dawlish

Torbay: Torquay and Paignton

West Devon: Ivybridge, Tavistock, Holsworthy and Okehampton

South Hams: Dartmouth and Kingsbridge

East Devon: Seaton and Axminster.

Living well with dementia is dependent on others working well with dementia. We are looking for intelligent, versatile and empathetic hosts to meet this brief. You will be required, in your own homes, to meaningfully occupy and engage with a maximum of 4 older people who may be socially isolated and experiencing symptoms associated with moderate dementia, including memory loss. The Filo service operates between the core hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m and during the day you will be required to cook a lunch. It is essential that you have a full, clean driving license and use of a 5 door car.

Experience is not necessary but what you must possess or be is; a good listener, gentle, able to ‘read’ people well, a creative thinker, a creative linker, sense of humour, understanding, good general knowledge, a willingness and an openness to learn from clients.

For an informal discussion please contact Lorna Davis on 01392 982138 or email your CV to us at info@thefiloproject.co.uk explaining how you meet the criteria for the role as described in the Job Description and Person Specification which is available to download from the 'Related informaiton' section on this web page.
