Research

Help shape the future of dementia care and support.

During these challenging times, as we all try to adapt to a new normal, keeping ourselves and our loved ones safe is at the top of everyone’s priority list, especially if yourself or a loved one is living with dementia. The challenges social distancing bring for those with a dementia are wide-reaching and as varied as the disease itself; that’s why it’s so important that we hear from patients and carers in this challenging time to help us understand their needs and concerns.

Dementia and COVID research is adapting, offering patients new, safe, ways to ensure their voices are heard and enabling researchers to understand individual concerns about the impact COVID-19 has had on their lives. For those who have the capacity and time, Join Dementia Research offers access to a number of studies which can be completed online or over the phone, you can find out more by calling the Alzheimer’s society on: 0333 150 3456, Alzheimer’s Research UK on: 0300 111 5 111 or visiting their website: www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk.

Faith

The Inter Faith Network online workshop and devotional resources includes examples of how faith communities are providing ‘virtual’ worship and devotional opportunities and guidance, as well as examples of resources for prayers at home whilst places of worship are closed following social distancing measures.
