Carers supporting partners living with dementia at home during the COVID-19 pandemic
Carers of partners living with dementia at home have faced significant challenges due to Covid-19. In response to the pandemic, many local authorities changed the way that they assessed and delivered support services such as day centres and the provision of care at home. This research aims to improve understanding of how these changes may have impacted upon people living with dementia and their partners.
We would like to interview carers:
- aged 70 years or over
- that care for a partner or spouse who is living with dementia at home
We are particularly interested in hearing from people who live in one of the following four geographical areas: Derbyshire, Doncaster, Oldham, or Coventry
What will I be asked to do?
Taking part involves a telephone or zoom interview that will last approximately one hour. The interview will be arranged for a date and time that is convenient for you. If you would prefer, it is also possible to do the interview in two parts.
When and where?
Interviews will take place over the telephone or Zoom, at a time and date convenient to you.
Will I get anything for taking part?
You will be offered a £20 voucher to thank you for your time, together with £20 towards the cost of any substitute care that is required to enable you to take part in the interview.
