Expert Dementia Training for Staff & Volunteers
About our Trainer
Carmel Geoghegan is an advocate and supporter of campaigns that keep the spotlight on Dementia and End of Life Care as a national health priority. Her priority is the development of practice and policies that respect people living with a dementia diagnosis. Carmel’s advocacy work stems from becoming the primary carer for her late Mum Angela in January 2011 after Angela received a late diagnosis of vascular dementia.
Carmel experienced first hand the devastation that comes with a diagnosis, the loss of friends and family, the loneliness and social isolation that is a part of living with a diagnosis or caring/supporting a loved one with a diagnosis.
Prior to Carmel’s life-changing experience, her professional background was in the hospitality and retail industries. She brings over 30 years experience in working with people to develop and deliver a unique and top-class service.
