Changes to dementia care can promote independence

Flinders University in South Australia is leading a national research programme to help people with dementia maintain their quality of life and independence.

Dementia researchers at the Adelaide-based university will work with scientists from Griffith University in Brisbane and the University of Sydney to improve post-diagnosis care for dementia patients.

The project is funded by a $770,500 grant from the National Health and Medical Research Council and will be led by Flinders occupational therapist and aged care researcher, Kate Laver.
