Personal Care in Dementia - UEA Research Study

The UEA looking for care homes to take part in a research study. The research is examining personal care in dementia, and they would like to recruit care-home staff and residents living with dementia to find out the factors involved in assisting people with dementia with their personal care.

Knowledge from the findings will be used to develop training for carers of people with dementia.

The research involves a one off session with a staff member to go through questionnaires about a participating resident. There is also an optional second stage involving interviews and/or observations with staff and/or residents. They are hoping to involve between one and six pairs (a resident and a staff member) from each participating care home – one pair is fine.

If you are interested in being involved please contact:
