I joined Lothian and Borders Police in the late 1970’s and left in 1990, when I had my first child, no part-time policing in those days! I then worked with troubled and troublesome teenagers, before qualifying as a Social Worker. After qualifying, I managed small day care groups for the elderly, co-ordinated a mental health group-work project for older people, and have been involved in the recruiting and assessing of community carers. I joined Balfour+Manson in April 2010.
I can offer guidance on welfare benefits, also my background allows me to offer practical support and advice, to clients when they are considering the various options for continuous long term care. I am aware that this can be a stressful time for clients and always aim to work in a sensitive, person centred way.
