Perspectives on personal outcomes of early stage support for people with dementia and their carers

One of a series of reports which forms part of the PROP Practitioner Research Programme, a partnership between the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships (CRFR) at the University of Edinburgh and IRISS that was about health and social care for older people.

This research project seeks to identify the personal outcomes of early stage support provided by Alzheimer Scotland's Dundee Service by conducting semi-structured interviews with individuals living with a diagnosis of dementia who are using the service, as well as their carers and also seeking the views via questionnaire of the staff and volunteers who provide the support.

The narratives were analysed in the context of the Five Pillars of Post Diadnostic Support and the Talking Points Outcomes Approach.
