Jackie Pool is a UK leading specialist in dementia care who sat on the reference group for the National Dementia Strategy and was commissioned by Skills for Care to write the national dementia qualification framework (QCFs).
Jackie has dedicated her professional career of more than 30 years to improving the lives of people who are living with dementia. She began as an Occupational Therapy support worker in a Liverpool Hospital in the early 1980’s where she saw at first-hand how services provided to people with dementia could vary from being highly supportive to being undermining of an individual’s well-being.
Jackie qualified as an Occupational Therapist in Liverpool in 1988 and since then has worked in health and social care services, continuously developing her knowledge and skills in supporting individuals with dementia.
She is recognised as a leading dementia specialist and was awarded the National Dementia Care Award 2011 for Best Dementia Care Personality. Her publications about providing support to individuals with dementia and their families are used around the world and Jackie speaks regularly at conferences and through social media networks about the work she continues to develop.
