People with dementia can have difficulty communicating their feelings or letting someone know that something is wrong.

Our research aims to find the best ways to help people with dementia to provide feedback and have conversations about their care. We will co-design free resources to help people with dementia engage in important conversations.

We would like to hear about your experiences of having conversations about care.

  1. Complete an interview about your experiences (1hour)
  2. You may be invited to attend a focus group (up to 2 hours)
  3. You may be invited to participate in co-design workshops (2 hours each)

Eligibility 

  1. People with dementia
  2. Family members and informal carers of a person with dementia
  3. Formal carers, health professionals and care managers (nursing, medical, allied health, personal carer)

Participant benefits

Participants will receive a $20 gift voucher as reimbursement for time.
