I have worked in many roles with Adult Social Care in a local authority, as a social worker, moving up to Assistant Manager and then Team Manager. I have worked on health and social care integration. I consider my area of expertise to be working with older people and people with a dementia. I am working as an independent social worker providing advocacy services, direct assessments, reviews, training, practice educator support and professional supervision. I am a qualified Best Interest Assessor working part time for a local authority doing DoLS assessments.
