The Centre for Dementia aims to improve the lives of people with dementia and their carers, through high quality, useful research looking at how people with dementia spend their time and what helps them to get quality from life.

Researchers are focused on implementing things that work, and use their expertise to raise awareness among the general public about ageing and dementia.

Dementia is a term that is used to describe a collection of symptoms, including memory loss, problems with reasoning, perception and communication skills. Dementia is a progressive condition, which means the symptoms are likely to get worse over time. It therefore has particular implications for family members who are providing care and are directly affected.
