Welcome to Forget Me Not Dementia Training
I have worked in the Health & Social Care sector for over 15 years from community care to care homes. I have also been involved with the running of a day centre which has enabled me to look at different approaches to activities and how they make a difference to a person with dementia.
I was appointed Lead Practitioner in Dementia Care for the CHS Group in Cambridge in November 2011. This role provided support, information, and a signposting service for people with dementia their carer’s and relatives. In 2014 I was appointed the Dementia Services Manager for their 3 residential care homes. This role meant that we could continuously develop and invest time in our residential homes and support residents, relatives and staff to a very high standard promoting independence, well-being, dignity, and choice. Much of my work has enabled me to spend lots of time learning from people living with dementia.
