I see Locala as an organisation who is already working in the community and now looks to the future, by taking a step forward I aim to support the carer in the community.

The number of people who need care in the future from old age and/or dementia is on the increase. As a carer with 14 years experience, and my background working as a healthcare professional, I hope to improve understanding of a carers’ very demanding role and needs. This needs to cover help with financial aspects, good home care and equipment in the home where and when necessary, to aid the carer to look after their loved one.

The role does not stop there, choosing a suitable care home - giving the carer some respite relief - is equally important. I also hope to look at implementing a training project at these homes in order to bring them up to standard.
