Project Description

Our team at Monash Sleep and Circadian Medicine Lab has designed a novel intervention program that targets sleep and mental health in persons with dementia (PWD) and their carers. Developed in collaboration with Professor Susan McCurry (University of Washington), the Better Sleep Better Mood program is intended to be delivered via psychologists to carers. This particular project aims to use a Consumer Centred Approach to re-design and deliver sleep interventions for persons with dementia and their carers. ($3,000)
