Dr Lyndsay Lindley has a long-standing interest in supporting and enabling people living with dementia. In addition to research into care and the lived experience of dementia, she has been involved with dementia support groups, including Singing for the Brain and reminiscence therapy.
Lyndsay joined the Social Policy Research Unit at York in 2019 as a qualitative researcher exploring people’s experiences of navigating and funding social care. Previously she worked at Newcastle University on qualitative studies within multi-centre randomised controlled trials. Her first post-doctoral role at Newcastle was on a study to improve hospital care for older patients with cognitive impairment.
In 2016, Lyndsay completed her PhD, an applied conversation analytic study of interaction between people with dementia and their everyday conversational partners.
