Update on COVID-19 and Join Dementia Research
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for research. We recognise that these are worrying times for everyone, especially for those living with, or caring for someone with dementia.
Like so many parts of our lives, dementia research is being affected:
- Some research studies have been put on hold to keep everyone safe and allow research staff to support the NHS to provide much-needed patient care. You may find fewer studies open at the moment, and if you contact researchers they may take longer than usual to respond.
- However, there are many studies on Join Dementia Research that do not involve person-to-person contact, such as online studies. These studies will continue.
We will keep this site as up to date as possible while things are changing. Please check our news pages for more information.
Looking after yourself
- For information about how to care for yourself or a loved one, please visit the NHS website.
- Alzheimer’s Research UK has produced a useful video for people affected by dementia at this time.
Welcome to Join Dementia Research, a place to register your interest in taking part in vital dementia research.
Dementia affects more than 850,000 people in the UK.
Research is the best way to make a difference.
