Aimee Day, Project Leader, Training & Consultancy
Previous work and life experience has led to Aimee now working as a Project Leader for Dementia Adventure. Aimee delivers a variety of training, looking at how we can get people who are living with dementia outdoors and into the natural environment. She is also a consultant for DA working with a wide range of service providers ranging from green space organisations to private healthcare Community Interest Companies.
First hand dementia holiday experience and operational delivery enabled Aimee to develop a wide range of skills in assisting with Dementia Adventure holidays. Prior to working for Dementia Adventure Aimee worked as The Day Services Manager for Age UK Horsham District. Through a person-centred approach with her team she developed an engaging, creative activity programme for the Hub and the surrounding rural communities within the Horsham District.
Having been a family carer for four years for her Grandma who had vascular dementia, Aimee strongly believes we are all experts through our experiences, and it is essential to give people with dementia and their carers a voice when developing services and activities.
Early on in her career Aimee worked for two large adventure holiday companies within the operations team, organising logistics on the ground, staff and the adventure programmes.
At university she studied Documentary Photography at the University of Wales Newport and is a keen landscape photographer.
She lives in the fantastic city of Brighton in East Sussex, right on the beach so can enjoy swimming all year round.
Aimee is available from Monday to Thursday and can be contacted on her mobile 07886 630478.
