The Australian Dementia Collaborative Research Centre identifies current research being undertaken across the country.

Their goals are to:

  • further the prevention and reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias,
  • enhance awareness of dementia in the community and amongst health professionals,
  • improve assessment and care for people with dementia and their families,
  • optimise assistance for carers,
  • improve nursing home care and
  • enhance palliative care for people with dementia

A current project entitled “Trial of a community model of care for people throughout the progression of dementia” will try to provide evidence-based guidelines for the recognition, assessment and management of people with dementia.
