We commissioned this research to illustrate the impact of Shared Lives Moray's work with older people living with dementia and their family carers in Scotland, including information on the use of self-directed support.
It shows evidence of Shared Lives’ positive impact on people's wellbeing when they are living with dementia:
- ongoing connectedness to people's communities
- increased emotional wellbeing
- delay moving into residential care.
