Living with Dementia

The University of Melbourne through a study called HOMESIDE, is exploring the effects of music and reading/word-based interventions for people living with dementia and their family caregivers. The interventions are designed to be personalised to each person’s preferences and needs, and delivered by the family caregivers, who are trained and supported by health professionals throughout the 6-month study. We hope that the interventions will offer opportunities for people with dementia and their family caregivers to share meaningful moments together and give caregivers tools that can help in the care and management of their loved ones.

The organisers would be incredibly grateful if you could help us to reach potentially interested caregivers and people with dementia by sharing information about HOMESIDE with your network, by including our study information in a newsletter and/or displaying our flyers (we are happy to post these to you) at your centre. Please let us know if you are happy to do so or have any further questions.
