Join Dementia Research (JDR) www.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk is a national service funded by the Department of Health and Social Care that allows members of the public to register their interest in knowing more or participating in dementia related research and be matched to suitable studies.
Anyone over the age of 18 can sign up. You do not need a diagnosis. Opportunities are available for carers, family, friends and healthy volunteers. By signing up, volunteers give their consent to be contacted by researchers. Volunteers are under no obligation to take part and can choose which studies they wish to know more about.
Registering is simple: it can be done online or via the telephone (Alzheimer’s Society Help Desk 0333 1503456)
