Leading conversations about excellence in dementia care
We improve the quality of life of people with dementia through training, creating better environments and developing an outstanding approach to person-centered dementia care.
One person develops dementia every 3 minutes.
Around 850,000 people in the UK have dementia, which is projected to rise to 1.6 million by 2040.
There are currently over 42,000 people under 65 with dementia in the UK, and diagnoses for this age group are on the increase.
About Roger Waluube
Roger Waluube is a leader in the elderly care sector. Having moved into social care leadership from an NHS and consultancy background he is committed to providing exemplary levels of care through his care home and home-care businesses.
Standards of dementia care in the UK vary widely, and one of Roger’s aims to create a space in which to talk about dementia, the effects of dementia and how to care for people with dementia.
His priority is to improve the quality of life of people with dementia through training, creating better environments and developing an outstanding approach to person-centred dementia care.
Supporting vulnerable people to make their world a better place.
Care Home Leadership
My approach to leadership in the care sector is based on the conviction that the elderly and people with dementia deserve to enjoy the best possible care, and to remain part of their communities.
Through speaking at care sector conferences and training events, I am able to reach out to others within the care sector and local community to share what we’ve learnt and help to spread best practice throughout the sector through speaker.
I want to use my leadership skills to make a difference to vulnerable people across communities, not only in care settings. One of my aims is to make a direct and positive impact on the lives of children who suffer from poverty.
