Jean worked in health & social care before taking early retirement in 2007 when her father needed more care and support as his dementia advanced rapidly. Jean now works voluntarily to improve services for people with dementia and their carers.
She is a passionate about supporting family carers to have a voice, to be partners in care and use their experience to help other carers as well as professionals so that services continue to improve.
With the Life Story Network Jean is working with family carers to build their resilience by focussing on communication & relationships using narrative therapy.
Jean has now helped establish the new national family carer involvement network for carers of people with dementia as a legacy of the Carers Call2Action. tide – together in dementia everyday is hosted by the Life Story Network which she chairs.
