Dementia Care Practitioner Survey

Developing new care innovations an capturing your thought on non-pharmagical intervenions.

A group of dementia care practitioners from Norfolk and Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust are undertaking work to develop new care innovations for people living with advanced or later stages of dementia. They would like to understand more about current non-pharmacological approaches and where difficulties might be in practice (for example activities such as reminiscence, creative therapies, music, dancing, day-to-day activities such as washing up, folding clothes, being outside), specifially thinking about people living with advanced or later stages of dementia.  

To help with this helps they are interested in capturing your views on this topic. They are particularly wanting to reach health and social care staff from all levels and disciplines, who are supporting people with advanced or later stage dementia living in group care settings i.e. mental health hospital wards and care homes across the UK.    

All information gathered by this survey is completely anonymous. The survey has 9 questions and we expect this to take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
