Biography

Angela has worked in the field of disability for the past 30 years in the government and non-government sectors in direct service provision, management, teaching and research. Angela's particular area of interest is the relationship between family members where one has a life long disability. Her PhD research examined the transition of care from ageing parents to siblings for people with cerebral palsy who are 40 years and over. Angela's other areas of research interest have included: the de-institutionalisation of people with disabilities and their subsequent integration and participation in their local communities; the ageing of people with disabilities, particularly women. Currently, Angela is the Project Manager on the ‘Wobbly Hub and Double Spokes’ project, jointly funded by NHMRC and Ageing, Disability and Home Care (Western Region) to develop a flexible and responsive model of therapy service delivery to people with a disability living in the Western Region of NSW.
