Lisa has been appointed our new Dementia Champion

Lisa’s role as Dementia Champion is to make sure our staff retain their high level of knowledge of the condition and the best approaches and techniques to support people living with it.  Having said that, everyone’s case is of course different as are the things that interest them.  So Lisa works with individuals and their families in identifying what works best for them and then advising her carer colleagues on what is needed.  Lisa focuses foremost on how we can help a person to maintain maximum independence, but she also drills down into the things that will spark their interest and positivity. 
 
Lisa says, “I love my job because I feel I am making a difference by bringing a positive outcome to someone’s day.”
