Interview study: Internet use by people with early onset dementia & carers

04 January 2018

This project is being conducted to see how people who have a diagnosis with Young Onset Dementia are using the internet, and how they, and their families, are using it to find information about their diagnosis, and services and support available. It also looks to find out if people have planned for what happens to their online profiles and data in the future, for example social media profiles, emails, or online bill payments and banking.
