Call for research volunteers:

Are you caring for someone with dementia?

We are looking for research participants to take part in a program delivered via video conferencing. The aim is to determine whether is helpful for carers of a person with dementia to better understand and respond to the behaviours of the person they care for.

To participate in the study, you need to: be 18 years of age or over, be caring for and living with someone with dementia and live within 100k radius of Melbourne.

This program involves eight weekly face-to-face (via videoconferencing) sessions of education, relaxation and counselling.
