Dementia nurse consultant Yvonne Manson has established a care programme improving quality of life for more than 700 residents in 25 care homes. Her passion for dementia care and removing the stigma associated with working or living in a care home drives her to ensure staff are trained and supported to provide a high standard of dementia care for residents and to strive for excellence at all times. To ensure people with dementia and carers have a voice, she collected views from all residents, families and staff about what they wanted. Her passion has proved infectious – there are now 90 dementia champions throughout the group’s homes.
