Dementia and Ageing

The Dementia & Ageing Research Group carries out multidisciplinary, policy and practice relevant social scientific research with particular emphasis on people with dementia and those who support and care for them. The perspectives of people with dementia, their supporters and carers are central, and they seek to understand their everyday lives and find ways of promoting wellbeing and better quality of life.

The spectrum of research spans from healthcare, looking at the outcomes of people with cognitive impairment and dementia in the hospital setting, through end of life care, decision making for care provision, the roles of community based care professionals in particular community pharmacists, and the importance of the dementia friendly neighbourhood. This large spectrum of research is made possible by the vast skill mix of the team: doctors, nurses, pharmacists, psychologist, economists, social workers, social scientists, musicians, carers and people with dementia. The research group works with researchers, clinicians and social care practitioners from many disciplines across the University and with national and international colleagues in Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia.

The research team is fortunate to be aided in the translation of their research into education and policy informing practice by their collaborative working with the Dementia Services Development Centre.
