I’m very excited to be going on a Mini Tour of Ayrshire.

  • We start off on August 2nd, myself and  ALLIANCE director Irene Oldfather with be traveling to and around Arran for 3 talks with Kerry Rennie and North Ayrshire dementia services meeting families, carers, and health and social care professionals.

  • On August the 9th I will be volunteering for the day with the wonderful Food Trainacross Irvine and North Ayrshire. 

  • My next stop along the way will be at Dalmellington Care Centre Ayr on the 10th and then on to Fairknowe care home Maybole on the 12th

  • The next stop along the way will be Thistleknowe Care Home in Bieth on the 17th

  • On the 23rd I will be attending and joining a steering group to look at supporting dementia friendly Girvan Hospital 


  • The final two talks will be to nursing students at the University west of Scotland Ayr campus Hamilton Campus September 14th 1pm – 3 pm Ayr campus September 16th 10 – 12 am the 1 pm till 3pm.
