Now passionately concerned about the senior adult social sector, following on from her own mother’s experience of being in care, she is very interested in the Avery quality approach to care and standards delivered in resident services. She sees that Avery are at the forefront of best in practice in the sector and is keen to support the importance and meaning behind good care and services and get involved with what Avery do. Conscious that “We are all going there” in her terms regarding later life, she is now a prominent voice in the quest for better care for those needing support in the senior generation. She was therefore keen to get behind the Avery model and message.
