New research project begins - DemECH: Living with dementia in extra care housing
We are proud to announce that we have recently been awarded funding from the NIHR School for Social Care Research to explore the different types of extra care housing available to support people living with dementia. As more and more people opt for extra care housing as a preference for their lifestyle choice, it is important that we know which models can best support the wellbeing of people living with dementia. Alongside partners from Housing21, Worcestershire County Council, The Housing & Dementia Research Consortium and the HousingLIN, we are excited to be at the beginning of this 18-month project. Findings from this research will be translated into accessible information booklets to support decisions by people living with dementia and their families, commissioners and health & social care practitioners. The Project team will consist of Principal Investigators Dr Simon Evans and Teresa Atkinson and Research Associate Rebecca Oatley. Please contact Teresa Atkinson if you would like further details (firstname.lastname@example.org)
