Are you living with Dementia or caring for a family member with dementia?

We would like to know what youthink about a new program researchers from the University of Queensland are studying to assist people living with dementia and family members who care for them.

The program is called the Tailored Activity Program(TAP) and involves Occupational Therapists working with people with dementia and their carers to enhance participation in enjoyable activities in their own home and improve their quality of life.  It shows carers strategies to communicate with people with dementia and can make everyday tasks a little easier. 

The program is not avaiable in Australia yet but we want to know if it might work here.

We would like to know what you think about this program and other similar services, and whether you think it might be useful for people in your situation. 

We will come to your house (or anywhere that suits you) at a time & place that is convenient for you. 

The interview will take about 40 mins. There is no costassociated with talking to us, and there is no obligation to participate.  

If you are interested in participating or would like more information about the project, please call: 

Catherine Travers or Sandra Smith on 0431943897 or email
