Community activation is critical to reducing the scale and impact of dementia and loneliness on older people. Harnessing and increasing the contribution of volunteers to provide pyscho-social, support will deliver improved outcomes for people living with dementia and their carers.
Driving change in the aging agenda to improve the well-being of older people is central to her work. Recent project successes include developing innovative dementia support services and creating high profile awareness campaigns to combat loneliness in older people.
Inspired by the fellowship, Siobhan has secured funding of £350k+ for programs including: dementia analytics, mild cognitive impairment, rethinking frailty, plus, mental and physical well-being initiatives and volunteer support for isolated older people during the COVID-19 lock-down.
