IDEAL Programme's Coronavirus response
We have produced a leaflet that contains five key messages about how people with dementia can stay well during the coronavirus epidemic. We used what we have learned from the IDEAL cohort participants about living with dementia to address some of the concerns that people with dementia and their families have been expressing. Members of the ALWAYs group of people affected by dementia were involved in producing the leaflet. The information will also be useful for family members or friends supporting a person with dementia (who may describe themselves as carers or caregivers).
We have also produced a leaflet for family members or friends supporting a person with dementia (carers or caregivers) of people with dementia that contains five key messages about how to support someone with dementia during the coronavirus epidemic.
The preparation of these leaflets was part-funded by the National Institute for Health Research.
