Working psychologically with people facing the end of their lives

Rebecca Dow

How can we work well with older people across CHP settings?

Becci is an older adult clinical psychologist who has worked across services in Cambridgeshire, Wales, Buckinghamshire and Warwickshire – with a 4 year sabbatical in Shanghai, China. As outgoing chair of the Faculty of the Psychology of Older People (FPOP), Becci is leading on the older adult competencies workstream, which seeks to identify the core skills needed by trainee clinical psychologists and psychological practitioners working with older people. In her own service Becci holds a responsibility for multiple areas of clinical health practice and brings her identity as an older adult clinician to this context. Here the approaches, models and ways of working across the lifespan, especially the older old is not the dominant narrative and there are real opportunities to draw on the similarities in clinical health psychology and older adult work whilst also highlighting areas to develop. Becci is developing services in frailty, falls and delirium and keen to develop older adult practice through cancer, long covid, diabetes and other condition specific domains. Models of intersectionality in older age is a specific interest, alongside cognitive change and assessment. Becci has over 20 years experience in older adult services across NHS settings, including inpatient, memory service, stroke, CMHT and acute hospitals and clinical health.
