RHAPSODY: support for carers of people with early onset dementia
Visit the RHAPSODY website >
Led by Prof Heather Gage of the University of Surrey, RHAPSODY primarily aims to analyse the health and social care systems and infrastructures in six European countries that are available to the severely burdened yet underserved group of people with young onset dementia (YOD).
YOD affects approximately 100 individuals in the population aged 45-64 years and their carers. In addition, RHAPSODY attempts to improve the management of people with YOD by supporting their carers.
The main instrument for this will be an educational, web-based, interactive e-learning programme.
