Official Launch of ‘Join Dementia Research’

Join dementia research (JDR) is a new nationwide online and telephone service that allows people to register their interest in volunteering for dementia research studies.

Anyone with or without dementia over the age of 18 years can register online at www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk or by calling one of the supporting charity helplines: Alzheimer's Society (0300 222 1122) or Alzheimer's Research UK (0300 111 5 111).

Sue Boex, one of the carers who helped design 'Join dementia research', said: "This is a very exciting initiative, and one we really need people to get behind. Everyone can sign up, whether you have dementia or not, and there are lots of different types of studies to take part in… dementia is a massive problem and we're ambitious to help make a difference through research."

The official launch of 'Join dementia research' will take place on 24th February 2015.
