Aimee Day, Project Leader, Training & Consultancy
What do you do for Dementia Adventure?
I am part of the Project Leader team for Dementia Adventure, I co- write, research and deliver the dementia training that we provide to a wide variety of organisations who support people living with dementia. I specialise in adventure travel and can provide bespoke support on consultancy to anyone wanting to set up dementia inclusive full day events or overnight residential stays.
Do you have any other roles in the organisation?
I work closely with the operations team and the members of the Special interest group during their overnight stays during their meetings with dementia adventure.
Do you have any relevant experience, awards, certifications or accreditations?
I was the primary carer for my grandma who had vascular dementia for four years, I feel this lived experience provides me with a wealth of knowledge and first hand experience when delivering family carers sessions and in supporting families first hand on adventures with us.
What’s the best thing about your job?
I love being part of the special interest group meetings, empowering people living with dementia’s voice to be heard and to act as an advocate in enabling people to take considered risk to achieve all they want to achieve in a safe and considered way.
What makes you want to work for Dementia Adventure?
I believe that having the correct people around us to support us empowers us to thrive, at Dementia Adventure I hope to provide this support to people who request it to enable them to achieve all they hope to. If I was diagnosed with dementia I would want to know that this support and opportunity was out there for me to access.
