Developing dementia care research
Despite affecting 1 in 14 people over 65, research into the best way to support people with dementia is hugely under-funded. At Alzheimer’s Society we think that people affected by dementia should be at the heart of everything we do, and should have direct involvement in the research we fund. We consulted with people living with dementia, staff and volunteers about what areas of dementia care are urgently need more research. Now, with your support, we have launched three ground-breaking Centres of Excellence to address these urgent areas.
Centres of Excellence
Our Centres of Excellence are investigating the best way to support someone after a dementia diagnosis, what factors improve quality of life as dementia progresses, and developing programmes to help people with dementia stay in their own home for longer. Learn more about how we're revolutionising dementia care research.
Your donations could help support these important research projects, or help to fund new promising research applications, and change the lives of the thousands of people living with dementia.
Why I support Alzheimer's Society
When dementia took my mum and dad I made a pledge to help create a dementia-free future for my grandchildren. That’s why I’m asking you to make a gift. No matter what size, it has the potential to assist in finding a cure for dementia. What a truly wonderful thought that is.
