Biography

I joined the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies in 2014 as a Dementia Care Trainer.  I am also the Experts by Experience Lead in the Centre (Patient & Public Involvement), working with people living with dementia and their families who  work with us  in dementia training, research and eduction.

I deliver all aspects of dementia care training to staff from dementia care homes, hospitals, hospices and other areas of the care workforce.  I also work with Experts by Experience to create, review and deliver the content of our training.

I also deliver training in two observational framework tools, Dementia Care Mapping and SOFI (Short Observational Framework for Inspection).

Prior to joining the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies, I was Dementia Support Manager and UK Dementia Trainer for Alzheimer's Society, based in Bradford.  There I managed the Dementia Advisor and Dementia Support Worker teams.

I also lead the Pathways Young Onset Dementia support group as a volunteer.
