The Association for Dementia Studies (ADS) at the University of Worcester is working on a research project investigating the needs of people with dementia and impaired sight who live in housing settings other than care homes. The researchers are hoping to interview people with visual impairments and dementia. The criteria for involvement in this research are:
- A diagnosis of dementia.
- Some form of visual impairment.
- Living at home (including extra care and sheltered housing).
- Ability to give informed consent to participate in the interview.
- Living in the West Midlands (or in the regions of the Universities of York, Bournemouth or Cambridge).
Assistance with identifying potential participants would be welcomed: contact firstname.lastname@example.org
