We are looking for families in the Devon and Sussex area who would be willing to share their experiences with undergraduate healthcare students over a two year period by having 6 face to face visits with them in your own home.

Local families affected by dementia are being invited to take part in an award-winning programme, to help train the healthcare professionals of tomorrow and improve dementia care.

The Time for Dementia project, supported by Alzheimer’s Society, pairs families affected by dementia with undergraduate students, helping to better educate them about life with dementia and the challenges that come with it.

Time for Dementia is a fantastic way for the next generation of healthcare professionals to gain first-hand knowledge of what it’s like living with dementia.

Families out of these areas who wish to be involved can partake in visits virtually on MS Teams or Zoom with a group of students.

If you would like to know more about the project, or you know someone with dementia and a family carer who would like to take part, please get in touch at timefordementia@alzheimers.org.uk. More information can also be found at alzheimers.org.uk/timefordementia. The deadline for recruitment is mid December.
