Hello world!

Welcome to the ECRED blog!

The Edinburgh Centre for Research on the Experience of Dementia (ECRED) aims to create international, social research and impact that prioritises the experience of dementia and strengthens global understanding of living with dementia. The perspective of people with dementia is central to this work: ‘putting the person first’ is important for the researchers and students working in the centre. We provide a research and learning environment that creates opportunities for the sharing of knowledge and skills focusing on improving the lived experience of dementia.

ECRED works across the following core themes:

  1. Social relationships and friendships, peer support, emotions and counselling
  2. Living and dying with dementia
  3. Dementia and design
  4. Marginalised groups with dementia (including people with intellectual disabilities)
  5. Risk and resilience
  6. Methodological developments with people who have dementia on understanding experience and approaches to determining impact of policy, practice and society.

Academics have many voices, the grant application, the research paper, the tweet, the Facebook post, the dissertation/thesis feedback and the blog. This blog is a space to facilitate being closer to you and to share the research conducted worldwide and at the University of Edinburgh in line with the core themes mentioned above. We want people affected with dementia and those around them to live well with dementia. This blog will be written without jargon in a friendly informal style and backed up with evidence-based framework. You are welcome to comment and interact with us!
