Askandha Askandha

As a MSc. Health Policy candidate at the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE) with a background in mental health, I am deeply interested in the study and improvement of long-term care (LTC). I am a mixed-method researcher with my primary interests in the nuances of dementia care, support, and education of family carers. I am deeply invested in the improvement of care in rural and non-urban settings, improvement of community-based LTC, and the outcomes for unpaid/informal carers.
