Sarah Allfree

Centre Manager

My name is Sarah & I live in Fareham. I have always worked in a medical setting - became a medical secretary on leaving school many many years ago! In my 30s I decided to go to University & get a degree in Occupational Therapy.  This was my ideal job - looking after patients & enabling them to be as independent as possible, in whatever setting they preferred. Once I had my son in 2005,  I was lucky enough to be a full time mum. He had some complicated medical problems, which impacted his education and our lives. Once he was stable and doing well at senior school I found myself looking for work and became a domicilary carer. I loved my work and seeing people thriving & independent in their own homes. During this time I visited a Dementia Care Hub social group run by our Founder, Dr Kellyn Lee. From then on I started volunteering at the various groups in the Fareham & Gosport area. Observing the difference the Dementia Care Hub increased my interest in working with patients living with dementia. In March 2024, I was lucky enough to be able to take on the role of Manager at the Fareham & Gosport Hub. I am constantly in awe of the people I meet, especially the people living with dementia & their care Partners. I am also very lucky to work with the best staff and volunteers. I look forward to supporting many more families to live as well as they possibly can with a dementia diagnosis.

My name is Tracey, I am a wife and a proud mother of two successful young adults, and I have lived in Fareham all my life. I have a recruitment and service industry background , but for the last twenty years I have worked in the education and childcare sector, in which I started my own company and ran an arts and crafts club for young people. I love cooking, spending time with my extended family and walking my very needy Boston Terrier. Since I started working at the hub, I have met such wonderful people, with such interesting stories and lives. I love how all the groups within the hub bring people together from all walks of life. I arrived at the Dementia Care Hub looking for friends, but found inclusion and safety similar to what a family provides.

Wellbeing Facilitator

I live in Fareham and have worked for many years with children with additional needs. I’ve always enjoyed the time spent finding out the individuality of each child which is both challenging and very rewarding, as well as the value of teamwork with parents and colleagues.

Following a short illness our Mum went into residential care, and it was whilst she was there that I developed a passion for enabling people to live well with dementia. I took on the role of activity and well-being coordinator and built some wonderful relationships with both residents and families alike. I was able to prepare life enriching experiences through a person centred approach which we incorporated into group and one to one activities. 

I truly value the time I spend with each and every person I have met, and look forward to continue the amazing support I see in enabling everyone to live well.

The Dementia Care Hub - dementia is hard, getting support shouldn't be.
