Rachael Litherland co-founded Innovations in Dementia in 2007. She has a background in psychology and advocacy and is particularly interested in ways of working that enhance people’s day-to-day lives. She especially enjoys working with people living with dementia in care homes, having begun her working life managing an advocacy project for care home residents with dementia in London.

Rachael has focused for the past few years on involvement methods and has seen a lot of change from the early 2000’s when she set up an involvement programme for the Alzheimer’s Society. She is really proud to see the DEEP network flourishing and is looking forward to concentrating now on recovery and discovery projects with people with dementia. Rachael’s grandma Lily opened up her eyes to what it means to live with dementia.
