Dementia and Ageing Research Group, University of Stirling
Our research programmes deliver the here and now findings that have the potential to make real life differences today and tomorrow. As such our research has the potential for a more immediate impact compared to the likes of basic science and clinical trials research. Our research covers many areas but broadly speaking looks at quality of life and ways to improve it, be that by understanding everyday care and support, and dementia friendly neighbourhoods, practice in care homes or the acute hospital and the impact and delivery of design and assistive technology. Research activity is closely aligned with the work of DSDC and as a result has the ability to deliver palpable impact to the older population and those living with dementia.
