"It's All Changed:" Carers' Experiences of Caring for Adults Who Have Down's Syndrome and Dementia
McLaughlin, Katrina; Jones, Aled
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v39 n1 p57-63 Mar 2011
A qualitative interview study was undertaken to determine the information and support needs of carers of adults who have Down's syndrome and dementia. The data were analysed thematically. Carers' information and support needs were seen to change at pre-diagnosis, diagnosis and post-diagnosis. Helping carers to manage the changing nature of the adult with dementia is seen to be an essential part of the health professional's role.
