ABOUT THE STUDY

This study examines health and support services for people with young onset dementia in Manitoba from the perspectives of people living with the condition, family members and care providers.

The research is being conducted by Sheila Novek, a PhD Candidate at the University of Manitoba.  The purpose of this study is to learn about how people with young onset dementia and their families experience health care and support services. We want to understand the views, experiences and preferences of people with young onset dementia and their families so that we can make recommendations to improve available services.  We are also interested in talking to health care professionals and service providers who deliver care and supports in order to better understand the care that people are receiving.

The findings from this project will be used to develop recommendations to improve and expand services for people living with young onset dementia and their families.

This study has been approved by the Health Research Ethics Board at the University of Manitoba.

This study is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
