The Dementia 2020 Citizens’ Engagement: Making England the Best Place in the World for Dementia Care

Have you, or has somebody close to you, been diagnosed with
dementia in the last few years? If so, we’d really like to hear from you!

We are inviting people with a dementia diagnosis, or their main carer (either family or friend) to complete a short questionnaire about your experience of living with dementia. This is an important opportunity for you to share your experiences and maybe help shape and improve services in the future.

This questionnaire asks you about your experiences of day-to-day care and independent living for the person with dementia and at the end, we will give you the opportunity to sign up to receive further questionnaires in the future.  

If you would like to complete this questionnaire and help with this important study, please go online to You can also view previous reports and see what other people are saying about their experiences.

If you would prefer to receive a questionnaire in the post, please give us a call and we would be happy to send you one or answer any questions you may have. Please contact Claire Thomas at ORS on 01792 535 337 or, or Daniel Morris at ORS on 01792 535324 or .

This project has been commissioned by the Department of Health for England and the work is being carried out by Opinion Research Services (ORS), an independent organisation.

Thank you for your help and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
