Project Description

Behavioural changes occur in 90% of people with dementia. These changes are stressful and challenging for carers. The good news is that carers can learn skills and strategies for managing behaviours that other carers have found helpful!

The Caretoons project  conducted a study to evaluate two online resources (videos vs. fact sheets) for carers of people with moderate to severe dementia.

This study has been approved by St Vincent’s Hospital Human Research Ethics Committee reference number: HREC/LNR/15/SVH/21
