About me

I write about using the senses to improve quality of life for people living with dementia. The sense of smell, in particular, is very important to me personally. My career in the perfume industry turned me into a fragrance enthusiast and the 5 years I spent as the main carer for Shirley, my mother who lived with dementia for 10 years, taught me the value of creating moments of joy to anyone with this disease. I hope that, through ReminiScent and my writing, I can increase awareness of the benefit of tuning into your senses with small actions that make a big difference to how people feel about themselves, their situation and environment.
