Project looking into support for dementia carers

17th June 24

If you are supporting a family member living with dementia you may find yourself experiencing worries or distress.

Research is being done into whether online support is helpful in improving your psychological wellbeing. And you can sign up to see if this support is beneficial to you. The research being done by the University of East Anglia, is a large trial testing looking at internet delivered self-help Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for family carers of people with dementia. This is called iACT4CARERS.

iACT4CARERS focuses on helping people to manage difficult or troubling thoughts and feelings, while still trying to do activities that really matter to them.
