More recently she worked as a Research Project Support Officer at Dementia Services Development Centre (Bangor University) in a study called “Dementia and Imagination” and as a Psychologist at the Red Cross leading memory workshops and promoting active ageing among older people living in the community.

Research

Yolanda is currently conducting a research study examining participants' acceptability and adherence to a Tai Chi exercise intervention designed to prevent falls amongst people living with dementia in the community.

Her PhD studentship is funded by a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Career Development Fellowship awarded to Dr Samuel Nyman.
