The research found that dementia home care should be more personalised, inclusive and collaborative with informal carers and key others involved in the care of people with dementia. The research was funded by the National Institute for Health Research School for Social Care Research (NIHR SSCR) who are improving the evidence base for adult social care in England.
This was part of a five year research project led by Manchester University and funded by NIHR. tide was a key partner from the beginning of the project.
