Improving quality of life for people living with dementia

The Dementia Centre is at the heart of excellence in dementia expertise, helping us embed this knowledge in all our care services, including residential care and in-home care.

Drawing on decades of research and experience in complex dementia care, our approach centres around what’s best for each individual. We call this relationship-based care.

As part of our commitment to improving quality of life for people living with dementia and their carers, it’s our privilege to compassionately and respectfully share our knowledge, practical tools and advice while continuing to listen and learn.

Our dementia experts, including clinicians, consultants and practitioners, contribute to the global understanding and practice of dementia through peer-reviewed research, publications and internationally recognised programs and consultancy.

And, of course, our care teams are walking alongside people with dementia and their family and friends every day, with a commitment to continual learning and improvement, which we share with others.


Developing the evidence base for dementia since 1995

Our consulting, educational and clinical services are underpinned by evidence developed in nearly 30 years of research and practice.

HammondCare established its first groundbreaking cottages for dementia care in 1995, and we use our experience, data and research findings to inform how best to deliver dementia services.

Importantly, we learn from the people we serve about issues that need to be addressed in research. For us, research is about transforming practice in complex dementia, changing behaviour, palliative care and more.

Access to this knowledge can help you improve the lives of people in your care who are living with dementia and others who support them.


Shaping the standard of care

We collaborate on a global scale on complex dementia, palliative care and positive ageing research, which translates into improved care and best practice in dementia and aged care services.
