Dementia

Our dementia research focuses on improving the quality of life and wellbeing of individuals with dementia and their carers. The D-PACT programme is a five-year project, funded by a National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Programme Grant for Applied Research (PGfAR), that aims to develop and evaluate a system for dementia support based in general practice for people with dementia and their carers. Our dementia-friendly communities work focuses on community attitudes and behaviour change towards individuals with dementia and their carers, inequalities and the differences between urban and rural dementia-friendly communities.
