What really matters to people living with dementia?
About this Event
Prof Siobhan Reilly (Bradford University) and Dr Andrew Harding (Lancaster University) will be sharing their work into What really matters to people living with dementia?. Both will present findings from their study including over 50 interviews and attained more than 500 survey responses to ask people living with dementia, care partners and those from professional groups an important question: what really matters to people living with dementia? Prof Reilly and Dr Harding identify the most important areas of everyday life and examine what dementia research tools include these areas. Unfortunately, a great deal of dementia research does not adequately focus on areas that people living with dementia deem to be important. Hopefully, the results of this study will help to change that.
Prof Siobhan Reilly holds a chair in Applied Dementia Care Research in Faculty of Health Studies at the University of Bradford. She is also the Director of the Centre for Applied Dementia Studies and Theme lead for healthy ageing at the Wolfson Centre for Applied Health Research, Bradford Royal Infirmary. Dr Andrew Harding is a researcher at Lancaster University interested in dementia, outcomes, information-giving practices of formal health and social services, housing and realist methodology.
