Description 'Awareness' refers to the accuracy with which a person appraises his/her situation and current abilities. People with impairments in memory and thinking skills as a result of injury or illness affecting the brain can sometimes show changes in level of awareness. In the early stages of dementia, level of awareness varies. There is some suggestion that the level of awareness a person with dementia shows makes a difference to well-being and support needs, as well as to the needs of family carers. However, there is a lack of clear evidence to inform theory and guide practice in this area. We applied both novel and existing methods to carry out a comprehensive exploration of awareness among people with early-stage dementia, to examine how it relates to perceived quality of life, and to identify the implications for care. Our results identify the extent to which degree of awareness is influenced by aspects of psychological and social well-being, such as mood or carer stress. People with dementia may show awareness through their actions even if not explicitly acknowledging any difficulties. People showing poorer awareness in some areas reported better perceived quality of life. These findings have increased our understanding of reduced awareness and can be used to help people with dementia and carers deal with the impact of reduced awareness. We have developed and piloted information and training materials based on our findings. We have conducted workshops for people with dementia and carers, and training sessions for practitioners in health and social care.
Exploitation Route Future scientific impact will result from the publication of currently submitted papers (as outlined above) and preparation of additional papers reporting further findings, as well as additional conference presentations. We have six papers currently in preparation, and others are planned. We are currently working on the data relating to our attachment measure as part of a new grant (RES-000-22-4117). We aim to prepare further research proposals based on emerging findings, which will include consideration of intervention approaches for PwD and carers. We aim to publish information about the training sessions we developed. This will be of relevance to care workers and to PwD and carers, and we will provide reports for the Alzheimer's Society newsletter and the Journal of Dementia Care. We aim to integrate this provision within the training programme offered by the Dementia Services Development Centre Wales and will explore its uptake within the practitioner courses offered by the Bradford Dementia Group and other relevant centres. Information will be made available to PwD, carers and practitioners. In response to demand from local groups, further training sessions have been scheduled, beyond the end of the project, and will be funded from existing resources.

Description Scientific impact derives from provision of enhanced theoretical understanding, development of new or improved assessment methods, and communication of robust evidence that will help to shape future research in this area. We have: • Presented an accessible conceptual framework to improve clarity in the design and conduct of awareness research (Clare et al., submitted 1). • Applied our framework to severe dementia (Clare, 2010). • Developed improved methods for scoring discrepancy measures (Clare, Whitaker & Nelis, 2010). • Produced the first set of normative data for a memory awareness measure (Clare, Whitaker & Nelis, 2010). • Developed novel methods for assessment of implicit awareness and indirect assessment of explicit awareness (Martyr et al., 2010; Nelis et al., submitted 1). • Used cluster analysis to identify sub-groups of participants according to level of awareness (Clare et al., submitted 2) • Provided evidence to support the application of a biopsychosocial understanding of awareness (Clare et al., submitted 3). • Provided robust evidence regarding the association between awareness and quality of life. • Reported one of few longitudinal investigations of awareness, demonstrating that the trajectory of awareness over time is not directly related to dementia severity (Clare et al., submitted 4). • Contributed the first detailed examination of awareness of socio-emotional functioning in dementia (Nelis et al., submitted 2). • Reported one of the first explorations of awareness in MCI (Roberts, Clare & Woods, 2009). • Reported one of the first cross-sectional and longitudinal explorations of dyadic relationship quality from the perspective of both PwD and carer (Clare et al, 2012).
