SHINDIG wanted to explore the experience of driving, or having to stop driving, of people with dementia. This was an issue that was regularly discussed informally and at organised forums at SHINDIG meetings.
The group felt strongly that there should be a strong emphasis on safety and moral codes. They therefore applied successfully for formal ethical approval from a local university. Online interviews and focus groups were carried out.
The results of this project have not yet been made public as they are being written up for a dementia research journal.
