Lissy Edwards – Speech and language therapist and dementia carers services practitioner, Dementia Carers Count
Lissy is a speech and language therapist who has worked extensively in the NHS specialising in the rehabilitation of people with brain injury, stroke and other long-term conditions such as dementia.
She currently works with Dementia Carers Count a charity dedicated to supporting family and friends who care for people living with dementia. She is part of the team that delivers three and one day courses to carers and contributes to the development of further courses and the new Virtual Carers’ Centre on the Dementia Carers Count website.
Lissy’s passion for working in the field of dementia, and in particular with family carers/supporters, is very much inspired by her own experience of supporting a close relative who lived with dementia.
