Person Centred Care Consultants
We'd like to work with person-centred consultants who help guide organisations through culture change programmes. In particular, people who have followed courses in dementia care design (such as during the online masters from Stirling University, Scotland), dementia care mapping (such as from Bradford University, England), and narrative care (such as by St Thomas University, New Brunswick, Canada).
People familiar with general household models, like Butterfly, Eden and Greenhouse, as well as consultants involved with Montessori and Planetree approaches, are also a good fit for supporting person-centred True Doors projects.
We're especially interested in working with people who can demonstrate this type of knowledge and skills and are based in the United States.

Culture Change Consultant
Over ten years ago Carolyne’s mother, Margaret, started to become confused and have difficulties with finding her way home - she was diagnosed with mixed dementia. And Carolyne began her association with dementia friendly communities and culture change in assisted living facilities. Alongside True Doors Carolyne works as a facilitator for Dementia Australia and is also an Eden Associate. We began our cooperation early in 2017.
Carolyne’s first project at Mercy Health Aged Care Bendigo took 6 months to complete. Carolyne was deeply involved in all aspects of the project and took pictures of residents previous doors. In the picture above Carolyne is pictured with her husband, John, who helps out when there are decals to be applied at homes around Victoria state.
