Dr Kathryn Lord,
Senior Research Fellow in Applied Dementia Research

Kathryn completed her PhD at UCL, 'The DECIDE study: Dementia carers making informed decisions'. This work developed and tested the feasibility of a decision aid to support family carers make place of care decisions for their relative with dementia.

Her current research is broadly focused on improving the care and support provided to people living with dementia and their family carers, particularly during transitions in either levels or locations of care.
