What is involved?

Meet with a researcher

Complete up to 4 questionnaires

Phone calls with a researcher to collect further information and see if you need help with the questionnaires

Invite someone close to you who provides you with support to also take part

We are also interested in learning about the experiences of a person who is close to you who provides you with support, but who may or may not be providing hands on personal care. This could be a relative, friend or neighbour.
They must be nominated by you
