Meet the ALWAYs group: Lived experience in dementia research

January 23, 2023 @ 2:05 pm - 2:55 pm

A webinar introducing the work of the involvement group of people with dementia and carers who advise the IDEAL programme.

This is a free online event via Zoom. The event is run by the IDEAL dementia research programme, based at the University of Exeter.

This fifth session of the IDEAL Webinar Series features the ALWAYs group. ALWAYs stands for Action on Living Well: Asking You. The ALWAYs group forms the IDEAL programme’s involvement group and advises on IDEAL’s research. They have also been directly involved with co-producing resources from the research, too.

In this webinar, you’ll hear about why these experts by experience want to be involved in dementia research, and what has made this long-standing group – many of whom have been together since 2014! – so successful.

In this session you will hear from:

  • The ALWAYs Group, Allison, Chris, Keith and Jacqui all live with dementia, and David, Jane, Julia and Monica are all carers or former carers. Together, they are the ALWAYs group.
  • Rachael Litherland, Co-Director of Innovations in Dementia and PPIE Lead for the IDEAL programme.

You’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions!

The session will be recorded to allow others to watch it afterwards. However, questions will be edited out if you don’t want to be seen. One survey will be sent out after the event, after which your contact information will be deleted.

If you would prefer to book without registering on Eventbrite, please email IDEAL@exeter.ac.uk.
