“I’m Jane, Consultant Admiral Nurse for The Good Care Group. I have worked in the care industry since 2001, and in my current role since 2016. Admiral Nurses are specialist nurses who support carers of people with dementia, as well as people with dementia themselves. They provide information, signposting, and emotional and practical support. You can find out more about Admiral Nurses on the <a href=”https://www.dementiauk.org/get-support/what-is-an-admiral-nurse/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Dementia UK website</a>

“As the company’s dedicated in-house Admiral Nurse, I provide support and insight into the care delivery for those living with complex care needs, and together with my colleague Jackie Cooper Occupational Therapist we run the Specialist Care Service at The Good Care Group, an enhanced level care package for those with the highest level of need. I provide support for professional carers and family members, training and education, service development work, leadership, and advice on clinical matters.

“I chose to work in care because I wanted to make a positive difference to people’s lives. From my work at a local county council I realised that my favourite part of the day was talking to carers of people with dementia on the telephone, and this inspired me to become a mental health nurse. I enjoy contact with people, and the variety that my day brings. I am always looking for new ways to improve the service that we offer and am proud of the achievements that The Good Care Group has made.

“In my spare time, I enjoy walking and art, particularly painting landscapes and I also do commissioned work.”
