EMBRACE

Exploring and Managing Dementia in Black African and Caribbean Elders (EMBRACE) and their family carers.

This is a qualitative study with semi-structured interviews and participant observations to explore how people from the UK’s Black ethnic groups and their families and friend carers manage memory problems and dementia. This study is funded by the Alzheimer’s Society.

Who can we include?

People with dementia or memory problems who live in their own home and self-identify as coming from a black ethnic group.

Family and/or friend carers who have a relative with dementia and/or memory problems who lives in their own home or in a care home.

Care home staff of any ethnic group, but who are involved in the care of people with dementia of black ethnicity

Clinical and non-clinical staff for people with dementia of any ethnic group, but who are involved in the care of people with dementia of black ethnicity.

Who do we need to exclude?

People who do not have capacity to consent for the in-depth qualitative interview, because we will not be able to obtain their point of view.

People with dementia who do not have capacity to consent for whom we are not able to recruit a personal consultee.

What is involved for the patients?

To be contacted by a member of KMPT’s research delivery team to discuss the study and for those who agree, will be contacted by a researcher at University College London, who will visit them and carry out the qualitative interview.
