Hi everyone,

I am looking for people who care for the elderly in the Leicester area in order to conduct research for my Final Major Project this year. I am a Master's Degree Design student and the focus of my project is on communication and the elderly, for example how do they stay in contact with the outside world? How do their carers encourage communication when they are not there?

What I am looking for is people who would be willing to allow me to interview them about their experiences caring for elderly people and, if possible, would be able to allow me the opportunity to observe some of your care work etc. However, I understand this can be difficult so any information would be extremely helpful.

If you are interested or want to know more please leave a comment in this thread or, if you prefer, Private Message me.

Thank you in advance,

Robert Whitfield
