We are delighted to welcome Lorraine Haining to Erskine in the role of Dementia Nurse Consultant. Lorraine, an award winning nurse, has vast experience in working alongside people living with dementia and their carers. Lorraine will join our current Dementia Nurse Consultant in supporting staff to develop expertise in caring for our residents through training and development programmes.
Erskine Director of Care Derek Barron said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Lorraine to Erskine where she will work with our current Dementia Nurse Consultant over the next two years. Over 60% of our residents live with dementia or a cognitive impairment. Lorraine’s significant experience and expertise, which saw her win the prestigious RCNi Nursing Older People’s Award last year, will only enhance the care provided across Erskine’s four Homes. We are grateful to the Scottish Veterans Fund, Armed Forces Covenant Fund and the Libor Fund for their financial support in making this post possible.”
