Abstract

A qualitative interview study was undertaken to determine the information and support needs of carers of adults who have Down’s syndrome and dementia. The data were analysed thematically. Carers’ information and support needs were seen to change at pre-diagnosis, diagnosis and post-diagnosis. Helping carers to manage the changing nature of the adult with dementia is seen to be an essential part of the health professional’s role.
