HammondCare Research

As a service provider, HammondCare is uniquely positioned to translate research into practice and partner with academics and other providers to build the body of evidence on ways to improve care. We seek to ensure that our research is sustainable and capable of implementation across all our aged and health care services.

HammondCare's researchers not only focus on research that can improve a person's quality of life, but also seek to build evidence that can assist family, carers and staff to provide the best quality of care and feel supported in their role. Our research work blends expertise and passion, service delivery and rigorous inquiry.

Our research focus areas include dementia and complex dementia; palliative and end-of-life care; positive ageing that encompasses rehabilitation, restorative care, workplace development and training; and pain management.

Partnered Research

HammondCare collaborates with research organisations across Australia and around the world to deliver a broad international perspective on issues that affect the lives of people with dementia, their families, and what, how and when services are provided.

Between 2012 and 2020, we supported the Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre (CDPC) at the University of Sydney. Resources and evidence developed out of that partnership are available at the CDPC website.
