Biography

I have been an adult nurse since 1985 and have had a broad range of clinical experience with a specific focus on nursing the older person. I started lecturing in 2003 and focus on dementia and the care of the older person on the undergraduate nursing programme and post graduate CPD framework. I am the programme leader for the BA/MA Care of the Older Person which is due to commence September 2015.

I deliver dementia education and the care of the older person programmes for health and social care staff working in the NHS and Private sector. I am in the process of completing the corrections for my PhD which has explored the meaning of home for the baby boomers using an interpretive visual methodology.
