Caring for a Person with a Recent Diagnosis of Dementia

Researchers at NUI Galway invite family carers, who are supporting people diagnosed with dementia or probable dementia since the beginning of 2017, to take part in a research study


What is the study about?


•It is about informing service providers and policymakers of the needs of primary carers and people with dementia in the two years following diagnosis.
•We are interested in getting carers views on current services and supports.


Who can participate?


•Anybody who is currently the primary carer of somebody diagnosed with dementia or probable dementia since the beginning of 2017.


What’s involved?


•You will be asked to complete a survey that can be posted to you, or, if you prefer, completed online. It will ask about your current situation, and services you and your loved one use.
