Dementia research project is looking for people to help with their study – Sept 2019

Have you or a loved one been diagnosed with dementia in the past 6 months?

DETERMIND, is an ambitious dementia research project funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and led by a consortium of researchers from across the UK. Their aim is to find out which groups of people have better or worse outcomes following diagnosis of dementia and why there are inequalities in care and outcomes. What they learn from the experiences of people with dementia and their carers will be used to deliver care and support that will give everyone the best possible quality of life.

Who can take part?
You may be eligible to take part in the study if you have been diagnosed with dementia in the last 6 months and live in the following areas:

  • Sussex
  • Surrey
  • Kent

  • Northumberland

Why take part in the DETERMIND study?
DETERMIND is one of the biggest Dementia studies to ever be conducted in the UK and will include the voices of hundreds of people with dementia. You can be a part of it by sharing your story with our researchers. The results of the study will be used to help inform policy and improve the lives of other people with dementia, their carers and families.

What will taking part involve?
A pair of researchers will visit you in your home to ask you questions about your health, memory and well-being. A friend, family member or other carer can be present during the visit.
