In March 2022, DAI hosted a webinar “My Life, My Goals”, which is a practical self-help guide created by people with dementia. In this presentation researcher Linda Clare, who is Professor of Clinical Psychology of Ageing and Dementia at the University of Exeter described the research that led to its creation.
My Life, My Goals was created as part of the GREAT project. Researchers developed and tested an approach called cognitive rehabilitation. It is a way of helping people with dementia to manage their daily activities and stay as independent as possible. One of our current board members, Emily Ong was part of this project, and also talked about her involvement on the day.
