Research participants needed – have you helped to organise care for an older person?

 posted by | 05/02/2019

We are researchers trying to find out how easy or difficult it is to find the right kind of help for older people who have to pay for their own care.

If you care for, or have arranged care, for an older person (over 65) who funds their own care would you be interested in taking part in an interview to discuss your experiences?

In our research project we will also be talking to older people who pay for their care but this will be a separate interview and we will not contact the older person for whom you have arranged care. We are interested in your experiences.

After we have collected people’s experiences and views we will produce a report which local agencies can use to gain a better understanding of the challenges and benefits of arranging care for people who self-fund their care.
