We are collaborating with people living with dementia and their loved ones to produce art in a safe, social, and comfortable environment where participants can express themselves creatively and speak openly. It is hoped that the process should evoke some great memories or emotions, manifesting in the making of beautiful art.

Formerly Activity Lead at Healthcare Ireland, where she developed and delivered a program of social, leisure, and occupational activities based on the needs of a large dementia specialist care home, she is skilled at meeting a varied level of individual preferences, interests, and abilities for people living with different stages of dementia.
