Time for Dementia project launches

Time for Dementia aims to help medical, nursing and paramedic students learn more about the condition and help improve the way people with the illness are cared for.  The programme is being run by Brighton and Sussex Medical School in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association and the University of Surrey.  Mental health trusts in Sussex and Surrey are also taking part in the two year scheme.

The project will involve 800 students spending regular time with families affected by dementia over two years.  About 200 families in Sussex and Surrey are currently taking part and the hope is to recruit at least 400.
