Dementia Resources for Eating, Activity, and Meaningful Inclusion (DREAM)
What is this Study about?
The Dementia Resources for Eating, Activity, and Meaningful Inclusion (DREAM) project aims to improve the quantity, quality, and variety of community-based physical activity, healthy eating, and wellness opportunities for people living with dementia. To do so, our team created a website with resources for community service providers, people living with dementia, and care partners to support people living with dementia to be physically active, eat healthy, and live well.
What Will Happen in This Study?
Participation in this study would include:
• An initial zoom meeting to learn about the study, answer any questions you may have and complete an online survey
• Reviewing our website and associated resources at home. You will have approximately 2 weeks to review and can spend as little or as much time as needed
• When finished reviewing, you will complete a post-survey about your physical activity and healthy eating knowledge and behaviours
• Reflect over the next 2-3 months on how you may incorporate some of the physical activity or healthy eating recommendations into your daily life
• Complete a final survey about your experience, physical activity, eating habits, and feelings of inclusion in your community
• A sub-set of participants may be asked to complete 1-2 semi-structured interviews to capture more in depth experiences
Who is Eligible to Participate in this Study?
- People living with dementia
- Family/friend care partners to someone living with dementia
