I have worked in adult social care for 30 years, working in learning disabilities, the elderly, end of life care and dementia.
Almost all my career has been in management of some sort, ranging from team leader, care home manager to regional management.
I am now the founder and managing director of three community interest companies, all relating to older people’s services. As community interest companies we attract funding for projects such as dementia safety at home, the value of music in dementia care, therapeutic garden designs, to name a few. My work is cutting edge and holds great value. I don’t work towards research, I leave that up to the major charities. I work with the “hear and now” dealing with and managing symptoms, the interventions which can make all the difference.
My talks aren’t scary, I don’t talk about prevalence of dementia. Lots of people are touched by this, these talks are designed to help each other and furnish audiences with information and the little tips which go a long way.
About my Talks...
My talks last for 45 minutes with a 15-minute slot for the many questions.
I have all the equipment with me although a table is needed for my laptop.
The talks are a mixture of power point slides, short videos and some audio interviews.
I have public liability insurance and my equipment is P.A.T tested.
My fee is £50 with no travelling expenses if you live within ten miles of my home address Doncaster
I am willing to travel 150 miles from my home with travel expenses at 0.50 pence per mile
