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.
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.
