As a carer himself, Emerson has worked extensively with health and social care professionals and practitioners.

These invclude Dementia Strategy Framework, Dementia Carers Strategy, review of Community Day Care for Adults and the Carers Grant Scheme.
Inspired by the desire to contribute to the care and support for people with dementia, it has led him to develop approaches that would enable carers and families to better cope with their caring and supporting roles.
