Hi everyone,

We've received the below message from our Research team:

***

'Caring for Me and You' is an online therapy package designed specifically to support people caring for someone with dementia. It has been developed by the Alzheimer's Society and psychologists working at Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.

Caring for someone with dementia can be stressful, and carers can sometimes feel anxious or depressed. We are currently conducting a trial comparing different types of online support, to see whether they are helpful in reducing carers feelings of distress.

To be able to take part in the trial, participants need to be:

  • Over 18 and caring for someone with dementia
  • Comfortable using a computer
  • Experiencing mild to moderate symptoms of anxiety or depression
  • Not receiving another type of psychological treatment at the point of registering for the trial
  • Living in the UK

If you are interested in finding out more about what the study will involve, please visit the website for more information: www.caringformeandyou.org.uk

Thanks :)

Harriet
