Take part in major study on care home decisions
30.11.16 A new study by King’s College London (KCL) aims to shed light on how people with dementia make decisions about if and when they should move to a care home. The three year study by KCL’s Social Care Workforce Research Unit started in April and would now like to hear from readers who have relevant experience and would like to contribute their views to the study. The objective is to answer questions such as whether there is a best time for the move into a care home, whether people with dementia make this decision for themselves, and what happens to people who do not have carers to help make such a decision. Factsheets developed from the findings of the study will throw light on what time, if any, people with dementia and carers see as “optimal”. Readers who have any comments or experiences or would like further information should contact email@example.com. The study is funded by the National Institute of Health Research School for Social Care Research (NIHR SSCR).
