I worked for Carers Outreach Service in North Wales for over 10 years and have experienced enormous satisfaction working alongside carers, many of whom were supporting someone living with dementia. I have also been involved with the CFAS (Cognitive Function and Ageing Studies) research project led by the Dementia Services Development Centre at Bangor University and I travelled across North Wales visiting people in both the community and in care homes. Prior to this, I worked for the BBC in North Wales.
I enjoy interacting with people and have come to realise that everyone has their own individual life story and their experience is unique to them. Furthermore my ability to speak Welsh has enabled me to build a close and solid relationship with families who feel more at home conversing in Welsh.
