This is an opportunity to share your experience of being a carer for a relative with dementia.
This research is examining factors that may influence the wellbeing and mental health of the relatives of people with dementia. While we know that caring for a loved one can be very rewarding, research shows the experience can be extremely stressful and can negatively impact carer's wellbeing. By improving our understanding of the factors which may determine different outcomes for carers we hope to develop more robust models of carer strain and design supports to better protect carers.
Participation is open to any relative of a person with a dementia of any sort who lives in the community (unfortunately those looking after a loved one who resides in long term care cannot take part in the this study).
Taking part involves completing a survey online or via post. The survey will ask about; caregiving activities, stress and wellbeing, reactions to uncertainty and engagement in activities. It will take most people 25-30 minutes to complete.
If you would like a copy to be sent to you in the post, please get in touch. To take part online, click the I would like to take part button.
The questionnaire can be completed at any time up until 31 December 2018.
