Assumpta Ryan, Professor of Ageing and Health, presents as part of the Civic Lecture Series her Inaugural Professorial Lecture.

The changing philosophy surrounding the provision of health and social care has resulted in a policy shift aimed at supporting older people to live at home for as long as possible. When caregiving is needed, family members provide support but frequently find that they are unprepared for their new role as caregivers and decision-makers.  This lecture will provide an overview of the author’s research on family caregiving, dementia and entry to long-term care from the perspective of older people and their families. Ultimately, the presentation aims to answer the question ‘How can we support older people and their families to navigate the changing roles, responsibilities and relationships associated with caregiving and old age?
