Dementia & Ageing
We undertake research that:
- Improves care of people living with dementia
- Promotes wellbeing for people living with dementia
- Enhances medication management and the role of the pharmacist in the care of older people
- Improving mobility, safety and reducing falls for older people
- Explores the connection between multiple health conditions for people living with dementia (eg. hearing loss, Parkinson’s Disease)
- Provides better methods to transition older adults between their homes and residential care settings
Our research is conducted in the community, residential care and healthcare facilities. This approach allows us to bridge the gap between research and practical application to drive progress toward a society where every individual can age successfully.
Our researchers work closely with:
- Organisations that provide support and care for older adults
- People living with poor health (e.g., dementia)
- Families of older aged individuals
- Healthcare professionals
- Government stakeholders
We are a multi-disciplinary team with world-leading expertise in the areas of:
- Aphasia & brain injury

- Epidemiology & public health
- Falls prevention
- Hearing loss
- Medication use
- Occupational therapy
- Parkinson’s disease
