The experiences, needs and outcomes for carers of people with dementia

 

Association of Dementia Studies, University of Worcester, 2016

 

It is estimated that there are some 700,000 family members or friends of people with dementia providing care in the UK. Carers make a vital contribution to the person they care for and to society. The RSAS plans to support carers to undertake their caring role and to enhance their health and well-being and so improve outcomes for themselves and the person they care for. The personal experience of providing support and care for persons with dementia is very individual and dependent on many factors. The range and quality of interventions that carers need and find available in their locality also varies considerably. 

 

We are enormously grateful to the Association of Dementia Studies, University of Worcester, for producing this comprehensive and incisive review of the literature currently available that examines the experiences and needs of carers and the evidence of outcomes produced from a wide range of interventions.
