Are you looking after a loved one who has a neurological condition? Can you share your experiences of providing care during the Covid-19 pandemic? 

Teesside University and Neuro Key are working together to explore caregivers experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic


What’s it about?

"My name is Amy Atkinson.  I am an MSc Health Psychology student from Teesside University (UK). I am working with Neuro Key and would like to find out more about what it is like to be a caregiver during the COVID-19 pandemic.  I will use the information to write my dissertation for the MSc Health Psychology course at Teesside University."

Am I eligible to take part?

•    You need to be aged 18+.
•    You need to be a caregiver for anyone with a neurological condition.
•    You need to be a family member of the person and not a paid carer for an organisation
•    You cannot be a carer for someone who is in palliative care

What will I have to do?

I would like you to write a diary for 1 month about your experiences as a caregiver during the pandemic.  The diary can be as long or as short as you would like but I would like you to write at least twice a week. You can write it by hand, but you would need to send a picture or scan the diary to be able to send it back to me or you can complete it on the computer.
