Welcome to the Midas website

This study aims to explore the thoughts, feelings and experiences of people who have been to a memory clinic.  In particular, we are interested in what people who have been to a memory clinic think about their memory. We would like to understand more about this in order to improve the future care and support of people who attend the memory clinic and who experience memory problems. For each person who has attended the memory clinic, we also aim to ask someone who knows the person well for their views on how that person is managing with his/her memory. Usually this is a husband, wife, other family member, or close friend.

Our target number was initially 100 people and as of December 2008 we are pleased to report that 96 people who have attended clinics have agreed to take part. We have also spent time with key relatives and friends gaining their perspective.

Where have the people lived?

We have been involved with all three NHS trusts in North Wales - North West Wales, Conwy & Denbighshire and North East Wales. We have recruited from all over North Wales, from Wrexham to Holyhead and taking in the sights of Harlech, Abersoch, Llangollen and Bala along the way.
