The role of social work in supporting people living with dementia in recent migrant populations to maximise quality of life

Adele van Wyk In progress  


Migrant families may face unique challenges in living with a diagnosis of dementia or caring for a family member living with dementia within the UK.


This award will support Adele to develop – through meaningful consultation and preparation with social care and public health experts – a study to explore the experiences of recent migrants living with dementia or who care for a person with dementia. Her aim is to establish what helps people living with dementia and carers who recently migrated to England to maintain quality of life.
