Profile

I have extensive experience working with adults with neurological conditions. I can use these skills to complete thorough and detailed assessments of client’s needs and develop clear person-centred goals with them and their families to direct case management input.

I have gained a lot of experience working in the community and am familiar with the issues which can arise for clients at home.
