Edye Hoffmann

Edye Hoffmann established dementiaCOMPASS in 2010, a volunteer organisation which supports people who are living with dementia for both those with a dementia diagnosis and their care partners. dementiaCOMPASS aims to improve people’s quality of life with community-based resources. Edye has worked ‘in and around’ dementia for the last nine years, first as a family carer and later as an activities coordinator in a care home and a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Society. Edye’s training is in social anthropology and community organising; she has a postgraduate certificate in Dementia Studies from the University of Bradford. (Updated 2012)
