Opportunity to take part in research on ‘Involving Family Carers in Older People’s Home-based Reablement’

Come along for a fascinating tour of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory’s Assisted Living Studio at UWE’s Frenchay Campus and find out more about the opportunity to become a voluntary research advisory group member for this UWE Postgraduate Research Study.

  • Are you caring for a friend, neighbour, parent, spouse or relative aged over 65?
  • Would you like to find out more about and even possibly be involved in a research study on ‘Involving family carers in older people’s home-based reablement’*?

The information session takes place on 1.30-3pm on Thursday 2 August.

The researcher will meet carers who might be interested in shaping the research and in finding out more.

The research findings have the potential to inform the development of services and resources that help carers in their support role. Your involvement would help to ensure that carers are at the heart of the research.

You would be invited to contribute your ideas to two meetings after the initial information session.

You are also welcome to just find out more – you won’t have to come to the follow up meetings if you realise at the information session that it’s not for you.

Travel and respite costs can be provided. (Receipts for respite costs or bus tickets are needed).

Please contact Caroline McAleeseCarers Engagement & Involvement Lead for more information or to book on: carolinem@carerssupportcentre.org.uk or 0117 958 9989.

Hot drinks and light refreshments will be provided.

*Reablement is a short and intensive service, usually delivered in the home, to help people regain their independence following an illness or injury.
