Abstract
This document reports on the evaluation, conducted between January 2010 and April 2011, of a post diagnostic support project for people with dementia and their family carers living in Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire. Ethical approval was obtained for the evaluation. A comparative design was adopted whereby fourteen people with dementia and twelve carers were interviewed and completed structured questionnaires at two points in time. In addition twenty-two local professionals and frontline workers were interviewed at the beginning and towards the end of the evaluation period to identify their views of post-diagnostic support in the area. Data were analysed quantitatively and qualitatively to allow for comparison in reported experiences over time.
