The Dementia Centre is involved with more research than ever before in its history.
The Dementia Centre is conducting both independent research and many collaborative projects with our partners, including Dementia Services Development Centre and the University of Stirling, Tenjin-kai Social Welfare Association in Northern Japan, the Dementia Collaborative Research Centre (DCRC): Carers and Consumers, based at the Queensland University of Technology and HammondCare’s new Clinical Training Centres.
Our research is strategic and practical, drawing together issues facing those involved in aged care, ensuring the findings are useful for culture development and training and never forgetting that we are dealing with the needs of real people.
Key Areas of Research
- Aged Care
- Assistive Technology
- Community Care
- Environment and Design
- Palliative Care
- Younger Onset Dementia
Many say that the secret of our success is quite simple:
The Dementia Centre’s research teams are able to work closely with HammondCare’s innovative staff and our residents, so that it is continually addressing the needs of younger and older Australians needing care.
