Few people have the opportunity to work with such a caring person as Carmel. Its rare to come across somebody who fully understands Dementia Care to end of life as Carmel does.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Carmel for the past two years, for the past year Carmel has supported me to travel so I can carry out my advocacy roles for the Alzheimer Society of Ireland/ Irish Dementia Working Group also for Alzheimer Europe/ European Working Group People with Dementia.

I have been particularly impressed by Carmel’s ability to move effortlessly between collaboration on dementia care and the different types of dementia.

Apart from making a very valuable productive contribution she always brings a smile to meetings. It’s been a great pleasure having Carmel’s support especially with the challenges I face in traveling.
