Helen joined Dementia Oxfordshire in April 2018 to provide support for Clients living in the North of the County.
With a background in the NHS as a nurse, Helen believes she is able to transfer her vast knowledge and experience supporting persons diagnosed with dementia and their carers. Previously working in the community as a specialist nurse in a falls prevention service, Helen has also acquired valuable person centred skills to be able to appropriately support individuals with their needs.
“Having cared for a family member diagnosed with dementia, I believe I am able to sensitively relate to any concerns and offer support and guidance with appropriate empathy”
Helen has recently been working to develop the Service, seeking opportunities to promote dementia awareness and fundraising activities across Oxfordshire. This has also involved co-ordinating events for Dementia Action Week annually held in May.
