ANN-NOREEN BIRD’S BIO
HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN ANYTHING?
HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN ANYTHING SO IMPORTANT THAT IT CAUSED YOU TO WORRY?
ARE YOU OR ANYONE YOU KNOW PLAGUED BY FORGETFULNESS?
Ann-Noreen Bird, of globaldementiacare.com, is a dementia care expert. Over the last 24 years, Ann-Noreen has held various positions as a ward nurse, a community nurse, a turnaround specialist nurse, a practice development nurse, a ward manager, a teacher, a trainer, an educator, a nurse advisor and a lead nurse of a London borough, all in the field of mental health of the older person.
With ageing populations across the globe, the number of people living with dementia is set to rise worldwide, so now is the time to take action
Ann-Noreen’s mission is to inform, educate, empower people globally to recognize and understand dementia so they can appropriately care for those living with the condition.
Ann-Noreen moved to London, England in 1990 after being successfully recruited by a London Mental Health Trust. Ann-Noreen began work in the UK at a Continuing Care Home for older people, whilst still continuing her nursing education at the Royal College of Nursing, finally receiving her Diploma and BSc from the University of Manchester
Ann-Noreen took her education further still and was awarded her Post Graduate Diploma in Nursing Education as well as her MSc in Nursing from South Bank University.
Ann-Noreen has had the privilege of working closely with many different Consultants and Professors of Old Age Psychiatry throughout her expansive career. She notes that constant learning has been essential to her work and treatment ethos in an age where truly effective medical advances in treatments have been made.
However, despite our developed understanding of dementia there is still a lot of work to be done. In 2015 there were 47 million people worldwide living with the condition and that number is set to rise to over 131 million people worldwide.
Through education, discussion and raising awareness Ann-Noreen hopes that her contribution will diminish the stigmas surrounding dementia and enable those in need to be treated and cared for effectively and with the dignity and esteem they deserve.
Martin Luther King Jr once said “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is what are you doing for others?”
This is my contribution to society; will you support me on this journey?
