What I Love about my job

My Dad (in the UK) was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in Spring 2020, so I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work at Dementia Jersey. I am a real people person and love meeting new people and organising engaging activities and events. I am really looking forward to developing the range and number of activities we offer to help make a difference to those living with Dementia in Jersey. However, working with all our wonderful volunteers and spreading a little bit of sparkle has to be the best part of my job.
