Dementia Forum - What factors affect the quality of life of family carers of people with dementia?

Family members supporting a person with dementia often experience elevated levels of depression and anxiety as well as lower levels of quality of life (QoL). However, the support provided to family carers within medical and social care services can be limited depending on the available resources. Therefore, it is important to identify key modifiable factors that predict QoL among family carers in order to develop the targeted intervention which can have the greatest impact on their QoL with the limited resources available. Milena will present preliminary results of her PhD which aims to investigate various potential factors affecting QoL among family carers and discuss how the findings may inform future support and development initiatives.

Milena Contreras graduated as a psychologist in 2015 in Argentina and moved to Spain in 2016 to undertake a Masters in Gerontology. She has extensive experience working with people with dementia living in care homes in Spain and London. Currently, Milena is doing her PhD funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), Applied Research Collaboration East of England (ARC EoE), Norfolk and Suffolk Primary and Community Care Research Office and Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University of East Anglia.

Please note: the lecture theatre is on the third floor of the Julian Study Centre, if in the event of an emergency you would need assistance please contact us by reply to arrange a Personalised Emergency Evacuation Plan (PEEP).

Please also be aware that photography and videography may be used to film the event - if you have any questions or would not like to be filmed please reply to let us know.

The bi-monthly series of free dementia events at UEA create an exchange of knowledge between researchers, clinicians, the general public, people with dementia and their carers.  Anyone with an interest in dementia research is welcome.

Researchers from UEA will present their cutting-edge research studies and findings – with a different UEA dementia researcher leading each event.  There will also be an opportunity for people to find out how to take part in any upcoming studies.  At the end of each meeting there will be a short 15 minute Q&A and there will be tea and coffee available on arrival.


Price Information

The events are open to all and free to attend. Parking is free of charge for this event in the ‘Main Visitors Car Park’ only (see map) and parking tokens will be validated at the registration desk on arrival. Please note that other car parks on campus will incur standard UEA parking charges.
