Abstract / Description of output
Peer support had positive emotional and social impact that was rooted in identification with others, a commonality of experience and reciprocity of support. There was also a contrast between the quality of peer support and support from professionals. This emphasises the significance of lived experience and promoting a strengths-based approach to interpersonal support that is enabling and challenges a deficit approach to understanding dementia.
