Dementia will affect up to fifty percent of us in some way or another in our lifetimes. For many, it’s too frightening or misunderstood, and this stigma can surround dementia in silence.

This masterclass will focus on the experience of dementia for both the person who has been diagnosed and their families.

During this webinar, we will explore:

  • What is dementia?
  • Understanding the experience of dementia
  • Tips for how you can give the best support
  • Finding out more information about dementia
  • How the Ben Fund’s partnership with Dementia UK can support you and your family
  • An opportunity to ask questions directly to an Admiral Nurse

More workshops, webinars and masterclass topics can be found here

Pam Kehoe

Pam joined the Dementia UK team as the Lead Admiral Nurse for Clinics and Awareness raising in November 2017, moving to the Consultant Admiral Nurse Team a year later.

She has been a Mental Health Nurse for over thirty-five years and has had a special interest in working with people affected by Dementia and their families since 1992.

She has held specialist posts within the field of Dementia since 1995, and as an Admiral Nurse since 2002 in both a community setting, and more recently in an acute hospital where she was the Consultant Admiral Nurse.
She enjoys teaching, training, and mentoring, and has had the opportunity to teach and train both locally and nationally.

Pam has been fortunate to have received several National awards and was a finalist in the 2016 Nursing Times Nurse of the year awards, and In October 2022, she was awarded the prestigious title of Queen’s nurse.

Pam has a real understanding for supporting people with Dementia, and those important to them in a meaningful way, and has a real passion for person centred and relationship centred care. She feels very privileged to be able to work alongside people affected by Dementia and their loved ones, and to be welcomed into their lives.
