Dementia and Visual Impairment: ADS Research Project, Participants Invited (DAA / ADS)

  1. A diagnosis of dementia.
  2. Some form of visual impairment.
  3. Living at home (including extra care and sheltered housing).
  4. Ability to give informed consent to participate in the interview.
  5. Living in the West Midlands (or in the regions of the Universities of York, Bournemouth or Cambridge).
