Resources available for people living with dementia and wellbeing of caregivers May 15, 2017

Are you a primary caregiver for a person with dementia?

Anne-Marie McMahon, from the School of Psychology at the University of Ulster, is conducting a study about the relationship between the resources available for people living with dementia in the community and the well-being of their informal caregivers. She has chosen this subject as she is involved in the care of her mother in Dublin and is very aware of the shortfall in services available and how this can affect the family caregiver.

Ann-Marie is asking people to take part in a survey. The survey is anonymous and Ann-Marie is aiming to collect responses throughout Ireland to reflect the wide diversity of services available.

Responses are in either paper format or online.

This study is being conducted as part of a Masters dissertation by Anne-Marie, from the School of Psychology at the University of Ulster. The study is being supervised by Prof Tony Cassidy. Each participant in this study should be aged between 18 and 69 years of age, and be the primary caregiver for a person with dementia. Participation in the study is voluntary and may be done anonymously. It should take approximately 30 minutes to complete. This e-mail and the study to which it applies have been approved by the School of Psychology Filter Committee, Ulster University. If you are interested in participating, please follow this link.

If you would like a paper version of the survey call Sage who can pass on the details or email Anne-Marie directly at: mcmahon-am@email.ulster.ac.uk
