Experience

I have over 20 years’ experience of working within Adult Social Care, delivering front line services supporting people who are elderly, frail, lonely, and vulnerable and people with living with a Dementia condition & their Carers.

I also have my own personal experience as a Carer, whilst supporting both my in laws on their journey with dementia and can appreciate the importance of being able to take a Carers Respite Break, even if it is just a few hours.

In this time working in Adult Social Care / ESCC I have undertaken a lot of training

NVQ2
City & Guilds Level 2 Certificate in Dementia Care
City & Guilds Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene for Catering & Many more.

Background

My professional background in supporting people began in 2000 where I was employed by ESCC ASC / LDC as a Scheme Manager for an Extra Care Sheltered Housing Scheme in Peacehaven.

In 2009 I was faced with re-deployment. Fortunately, I found a new & more expansive direction, in supporting people, when I became employed a Community Support Worker working for a new project within Adult Social Care. The project at that time was called The Carers Break Demonstrator Site Project. The aim of the service was to support carers of loved ones that were living with Dementia or Mental Health condition, to continue in their caring role. This project was highly successful and progressed on to become well established within the scope of Adult Social Care now known as Carers Break Dementia & Engagement Team.

I enjoyed 9 years with Carers Break which gave me the opportunity to gain still further valuable skills and experience in Dementia Support.
