"I have always had a passion for championing the rights and needs of people whose voices may not be heard"
I’ve worked with a wide spectrum of client groups and for the last 20 years I’ve had the privilege of supporting people with dementia in a variety of different capacities. I’ve spent most of my professional career working in Residential Care Settings within the Voluntary Sector.
My role as Co-Director of DTC affords me an incredible opportunity to further develop opportunities to advocate and champion on behalf of others…and to try to inspire others to do the same along the way.
"I feel so privileged to be a Director of DTC. This is the culmination of more than twenty years experience of working with people with dementia."
I chose to become a trainer and consultant in dementia care because I want to share my enthusiasm for working with people with dementia. I want to help learners in all fields and at all levels to recognise that any interaction, any moment of opportunity we share with a person with dementia can be positive and enriching - for us all.
As a Director of DTC I hope that I will be a positive voice, a skilled trainer and an empathic professional.
We created the Dementia Training Company in 2011. Between us we have over forty years experience in the field of dementia care. We created DTC because we believe that we have the knowledge and ability to make a positive difference to the lives of people with dementia by raising awareness of their experiences and providing bespoke learning and development opportunities for those who support them.
From our experiences of engaging with people with dementia and their carers, we determined that the main focus of our business should be to help everyone challenge the view that all people with dementia are seen as ‘sufferers.’ We truly believe that people can live well with dementia if afforded respect, care and support.
We believe that anyone who engages with a person with dementia, in whatever way, must have the right knowledge, attitude and ability to support them to thrive and continue to experience purposeful and meaningful lives.
We wholeheartedly support Objective 13 of the National Dementia Strategy: “An informed and effective workforce for people with dementia”.
We agree that “…health and social care staff involved in the care of people who may have dementia should have the necessary skills to provide the best quality of care in the roles and settings where they work” and that: “…this can be achieved by effective basic training and continuous professional and vocational development in dementia”.
