Ruby Pease, research assistant psychologist
I work in the delivery team for Older People’s Services and am involved in the CareCoach project aimed at informal carers of people with dementia. I love the idea of working on a variety of tasks and constantly developing and learning something new. It is also motivating knowing that the input that we put in now will shape and modify existing practice to provide more person-centred care.
The main draw of this position is that it was working within one of my areas of passion, that being dementia. Research itself is so varied and you can really dig deep into passion areas and make a real difference where the work puts evidence-based changes into practice.
