Do you work with people with dementia in England?
If the answer is yes, then we would like to invite you to complete our short, online survey about whether and if there is ‘a best time’ for a person with dementia to move to a care home.
You may be a home care worker, nurse, occupational therapist, GP,
social worker, Admiral nurse; you may be working in a day centre, a
hospital or in a care home. We have already talked to people with
dementia and their families, so this survey is really for paid workers
and managers. Please contact the researcher, Laura, if you have any
queries about this (details below).
This research is important because many people with dementia and their carers are unsure if and when there is a ‘right’ time to move to a care home. The findings from this study will provide ideas about decision-making based on real life experiences.
If you would like to take part or receive further information about this survey, then please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or write to Laura Cole at: The Social Care Workforce Research Unit, The Policy Institute at King’s, King’s College London, Strand, London, WC2R 2LS.
