The START program is recruiting carers to test the feasibility of an 8-week support program, using videoconferencing.
The START program is for carers of people with dementia and the focus is to lessen carer stress while improving quality of life. This research on the program aims to make the program available for carers throughout Australia, particularly in rural and remote areas.
Attached is a flyer and outline of the call for carers.
