Project Co-ordinator – Dementia Friendly Homes
I run a project designed to support people living with Dementia within East Herts live well and have a good quality of life in their own homes. In making the home environment work for them by providing minor to major adaptations we can reduce slips, trips and falls, support increased continence, nutrition and better sleeping patterns. These things combined can enable the person living with Dementia to support themselves better at home as well as supporting the carer in their role.
The project links with The Alzheimer’s society and the Early Memory Diagnosis team as well as Assisted living facilities, East Herts environmental health team and Hertfordshire Healthy Homes to provide the best possible support across the district.
