What I Love about my job

Clare is delighted to be able to work as a Dementia Advisor and help support people who have been affected by dementia. Personal experience has taught her that a diagnosis of dementia can be a difficult journey and informed, kind support is invaluable. Working for a local charity that is focussed  on the needs of people with dementia in Jersey is a real joy to her.
