Are you caring for someone with dementia?

With our ageing population, dementia is becoming an increasingly significant issue in the workplace as more and more people are combining work and caring for older, sick or disabled parents and other loved ones.

Dementia is a growing challenge not just for public services but also families and employers. Employers for Carers and Carers UK are conducting a piece of research to improve our understanding of:

  • The key issues and support needs for employees combining work and caring for someone with dementia.
  • Practical ways in which employers and other parties can help
  • Pressures which can cause people to leave work and how these can be addressed

Please take the time to complete the short survey below that Carers UK is conducting, this survey focusses specifically on people who are (or have recently been) both working and caring for someone with dementia.

To take the survey click here

The survey will close on Friday 20th December.

Following the survey Carers UK will publish results and practical tips and recommendations for action for employers and support services.

The survey is anonymous and all information will be treated in absolute confidence and nothing in the research report will be attributed in any way.

They are also performing a parallel survey for employers which can be completed by HR Managers/ Equality & Diversity Leads / Dorectors or other senior business managers and can be accessed here
