Research is essential to help us understand what causes dementia, develop effective treatments, improve care and hopefully one day find a cure. Because of this 'Join Dementia Research' has been established to make it easier for people to register their interest to take part in dementia research.
Most of the research studies using 'Join Dementia Research' will be looking at ways to treat, prevent or care for those with memory problems or dementia. However, you do not have to be diagnosed with dementia to sign up. People without dementia, as well as carers or families of people with dementia, are needed for some research studies.
Registering with 'Join Dementia Research' is easy and only takes a few minutes. You can do this:
- Online: www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk
- By phone: 0300 111 5 111
- Or call into the LiveWell Dementia Hub and pick up a registration form
