Carers

Family and friends provide extensive support as we get older and while it is often a fulfilling task, caring can sometimes be stressful and exhausting. NARI is committed to researching ways of helping support and advocate for carers of older people.

We are currently recruiting participants for research projects. Click here. 

 

IMPACCT: Improving Mood through Physical Activity for Carers and Care Recipients Trial

IMPACCT is investigating an innovative physical activity intervention designed for older carers and people they care for to undertake in their own homes. This is the first project targeting both the care recipient and the carer. The project was completed at the end of 2016, data analysis is underway and the main findings will be published in 2019.
