- The first PPI (patient and public involvement) meeting has successfully taken place to review the early stages of this project.
- A software development environment is being trialed and the aim is to test prototype app versions with members of the Deaf community as soon as possible.
- NRES are reviewing our application for ethical approval.
Emma Ferguson-Coleman and Prof Alys Young (Work Programme 7) are currently setting up a Member Involvement group of Deaf people who use sign language and carers living with dementia.
Groups meet on a two-monthly basis and are currently exploring ideas for projects, including life story, training and GP access. Recently, the Open Doors Neighbourhoods Research Group visited Salford Museum and were treated to a tour of ‘Larkhill Place’ and enjoyed a ‘taster’ of the reminiscence boxes. Many thanks to Naomi Lewis (Outreach Officer) for arranging and supporting us during our visit.
