From Hospital to Home for Persons Living with Dementia: A Multi-Perspective Qualitative Study
Are you an older adult living with dementia, or a caregiver of a person living with dementia, who has experienced a discharge back home from a hospital?
Please consider participating in an interview about your experience. During the interview, you will be asked to answer questions about:
(1) The care transition experience going from hospital to home;
(2) Any hardships that you experienced since returning home; and
(3) Your thoughts on what could be done to make the transition better.
A single interview should take 45-60 minutes, with the potential of a follow-up interview to talk about initial study findings.
The research study, “From Hospital to Home for Persons Living with Dementia: A Multi-Perspective Qualitative Study,” is being conducted by PhD student Marianne Saragosa at the Institute of Health Policy Management and Evaluation at the University of Toronto.
