Part of my current work involves the provision of consultancy in dementia care. My most recent commission was to create a new section on advanced dementia for the Social Care Institute of Excellence (SCIE) Dementia Gateway. I am currently writing a literature review for SCIE on current research findings in advanced dementia. The following link will take you to the information on dementia that is currently available on the SCIE website.
I am also currently writing a training tool with Dr Suzanne Zeedyk on helping caregivers to recognise communicative behaviours in people with advanced dementia. Dr Zeedyk and I have recently been awarded an Innovations Grant from the Scottish Funding Council to allow us to produce this work.
