Volunteering for research

Volunteering to take part in dementia research studies can be rewarding for people with and without dementia, and for carers. For someone in the early or mild stages of dementia taking part in clinical trials helps researchers to test new disease modifying treatments. Taking part in research will help to improve our understanding of dementia and find new treatments.

If you have noticed any changes in either your or someone else’s ability to carry out everyday tasks or think there are other symptoms of dementia then it is best to make an appointment with your doctor who can help diagnose what might be causing the symptoms.
