We are developing a new instrument to help identify those people who are best suited to caring for people living with dementia.
It is a special role and requires particular abilities. Family members do not get a choice about caring for their loved one but people who choose to work in long-term care or home care must be the most suitable people we can have for people who are most vulnerable.
This questionnaire is Step 1 in the process. It is a large questionnaire which we will shorten to about 40-60 statements in the next step.
It is anonymous and all details that identify individuals will be separated from the grouped information.
Can you help us by taking about 30 minutes of your time to respond to the questions and statements? There are also some photos of faces with various emotional expressions. See if you can pick which emotion is displayed on each face.
Your participation in this first step will be a significant contribution to ensuring people with dementia are cared for by the most suitable people.
Please pass this request on to as many people as you can think of that might be interested and have 30 minutes to spare.
Thank you so much for considering this request. If you have any questions please contact Bernie McCarthy at firstname.lastname@example.org
