A survey exploring attitudes to dementia in and around Bristol .
A little background:
In 2013 the Bristol Dementia Health Integration Team carried out a survey exploring attitudes to dementia in and around Bristol using a modified version of a scale called the Attitudes to Dementia Questionnaire (ADQ). We now want to repeat this survey to see if attitudes to dementia have changed over the last five years. We also wish to extend the survey to collect more information about how people feel about dementia, and the level of support they might be prepared to give to a neighbour who had dementia.
Participation in this study involves your answering a series of questions separated into different sections. The first section checks that you have given your consent to take part. After this, the next section asks you for some information about your background, such as your age and gender. You will then be asked about how you might react if one of your neighbours had dementia. In the last two sections, we ask you to complete two questionnaires looking at your attitudes towards dementia and your feelings about it. Completion of the whole of the survey should take between 10 and 15 minutes. All the answers you provide will be confidential and will be anonymous.
Participation in this study is entirely voluntary, but you do need to be aged over 18 to take part.
