About the Webinar: My Life, My Goals is a practical self-help guide created by people with dementia. In this presentation researcher Linda Clare will describe the research that led to its creation. Co-production team member Emily Ong will share her experience of developing the guide and explain how people with dementia can use it.

My Life, My Goals was created as part of the GREAT project. Researchers developed and tested an approach called cognitive rehabilitation. This is a way of helping people with dementia to manage their daily activities and stay as independent as possible. People with dementia found it helpful. The researchers then trained health service staff to provide it.

To make sure as many people as possible could benefit, the researchers also wanted to develop self-help resources based on cognitive rehabilitation. They collaborated with Innovations in Dementia and a co-production team of people with dementia. The team met online over several months in 2021 to develop and co-produce My Life, My Goals.

About our speaker: Linda Clare is Professor of Clinical Psychology of Ageing and Dementia at the University of Exeter. Her research aims to improve the lives of older people and people with dementia through a focus on maintaining cognitive health in later life, living well with dementia, developing rehabilitative approaches to optimise independence and well-being, and supporting family care. Linda has published over 250 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters. She is a National Institute of Health Research Senior Investigator, a Fellow of the British Psychological Society, the Academy of Social Sciences and the Gerontological Society of America, and vice-chair of the Governing Board of the Global Council on Brain Health.

The Webinar runs for up to 1.5 hours.
