What's the project about?
The 'Duties to care' project is interested in the experiences of carers of people with dementia. Dementia is an umbrella term which describes a range of degenerative brain diseases that have common symptoms. These symptoms include memory loss, decreased reasoning and communication skills, and a reduction in the skills needed to carry out activities of daily living. In particular the project focuses on carers' experiences of accessing health and social care services.Tell me more
The Duties to Care Dementia Project explores carers' views about, and experiences of, accessing health and social care services for people with dementia.
We have now completed the data collection for the Duties to Care project. You can find out more about the findings from this project on the findings page. The Dementia Talking project is still ongoing, and there may be an opportunity for carers to take part in that project.
