Her research interests include collaborating on the development, testing and implementation of non-pharmacological interventions for people living with dementia and those supporting them. Penny will talk about DREAMS START, a randomised controlled trial testing a non-pharmacological intervention to reduce sleep difficulties in people living with dementia. Penny will also talk about the START interventions to support carers of people living with dementia, developed here at UCL.
