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) and teach on modules within Faculty of Health Studies, such as Radiography, Physiotherapy and core skills.

I am also a facilitator of the Faculty of Health Interprofessional Education days.

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.
