Research Opportunity: Survey for unpaid carers of older people

A new survey launched by the University of Stirling looks at what carers look for in replacement care and the types of support carers value. Get involved and have your say!

Nadine Thomas, a PhD student at Stirling University, is looking at the preferences of unpaid carers of an older person towards support. 

She wants to hear the views of people who care for someone over the age of 55 (no matter how big or small the caring role!). As part of the project, she has designed an online survey asking carers to choose between hypothetical respite packages to build a picture of patterns of preferences across Scotland.

The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete and can be found at the following link: https://carerschoices.sawtoothsoftware.com/login.html 

If you have any questions about the research, or would like to receive a paper copy of the survey, you can reach Nadine through email (nadine.thomas@stir.ac.uk) or phone (01786 466 682).
