The research will be based online, and you will need access to a computer, the Zoom application and your own email to take part. Research will include an introductory session, a short survey and an informal interview. It will lonly take around an hour of your time. The project will give you a chance to share the highlights and challenges of being a partner but also provides an opportunity to share your thoughts on your well-being, support and the future.

We’ve been asked by Pippa, a postgraduate student at the University of Bristol, to promote and recruit participants for her dissertation research project on the mental well-being of partners who are caring for their partner living with dementia at home.

The research will provide opportunities for partner carers to share their stories, their experiences, and any support they find helpful. The impetus for this research has stemmed from the prevalence of social experiences of dementia and Pippa’s own family. 

The research will involve an introductory session, a short survey lasting 5/10 minutes via email and an online interview via Zoom lasting around 45 minutes. This will be done sensitively at a convenient time and date. All information and results will be confidential, and results will be reported in a paper and pamphlet available to all participants.  

For further details and to take part, contact Pippa by email or phone 0770 520 0116.
