Christine Elsley

Welcome to Forget Me Not Dementia Training

Christine, Dementia Training, Forget Me Not AlzheimersI have worked in the Health & Social Care sector for over 8 years from community care to care homes. I have also been involved with the running of a day centre which has enabled me to look at different approaches to activities and how they make a difference to a person with dementia.

Forget Me Not Dementia Training was formed in 2011. I wanted to pass on the knowledge I had gained and believed the best way to achieve this was through delivering quality training.

Forget Me Not delivers a professional training service across the region with up to date research and a unique approach. Delivering in care homes, day centre’s, sheltered housing and extra care schemes. Designed to be rewarding and interesting therefore giving a further insight into the world of dementia.

I was appointed Lead Practitioner in Dementia Care for the CHS Group in Cambridge in November 2011.  This role is to provide support, information and  a signposting service for people with dementia their carers and relatives. To help promote independence, well-being, dignity and choice.

I am fully committed and passionate about improving practice and the lives of people with dementia. I believe that excellence in dementia care can be demonstrated by recognising people as individuals and treating people with dignity and compassion.
