I am a registered mental health nurse specialising in dementia care. I have worked in both community and long-term settings and for the NHS and private sector. I have spent most of my career in Cornwall other than six months in New Zealand. In April 2015 I commenced a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) funded PhD through PenCLAHRC, as part of the Research Capacity in Dementia Care Programme (RCDCP).
The aim of my project is to explore the impact of memory cafes for people with dementia and their carers. This has been inspired by my personal experience of co-developing and running a memory cafe in Cornwall. The project will comprise a realist review and evaluation.
