Meet our Dementia lead

Hi, I’m Dr Ruth Cromarty and I’m delighted to have been appointed as the charity’s Dementia Lead for St Cuthbert’s Care.

I’ve pulled together our first ever charity-wide Dementia Strategy and I’m now focusing upon its implementation. My strategy includes a bespoke online training programme suitable for all of our staff teams and I’m currently overseeing this delivery. Pandemic permitting, I hope to expand this offering to families and friends in due course.

Having a PhD in dementia and experience of working as a research associate, I’ve worked with many people with dementia and their families and I’m in tune with the latest dementia research. If you’d like to journey with me as our charity transforms its dementia offering, you can follow my articles on our website, Facebook or LinkedIn
