Please froward this to anyone you know who may be interested in being involved with this study. We have the coaches trained, but are still looking for participants living in Australia who have been diagnosed in the early stages of dementia (any age), within the last six months.

Creating any change is difficult, but especially so when the health care sector and service providers will not make any changes, even those based on common sense, without research studies. This is one research study that we hope will start the much needed change to what happens to people at the time of diagnosis. Hopefully it will help to stop the Prescribed Disengagement®, and support people to live more positively, and break down the stigma and discrimination experienced following a diagnosis of dementia.
