Helping Hand joins national partnership on dementia research


Helping Hand is proud to be partnering with leading health organisations from across Australia in the fight against dementia, as part of a new research Partnership Centre which is the first of its kind in Australia.

Focussing on the theme ‘Dealing with Cognitive and Related Functional Decline in the Elderly’, the partnership will see Helping Hand come together with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC), Alzheimer’s Australia and our interstate counterparts Brightwater Care Group and HammondCare Group.

The Partnership Centre will drive research over the next five years targeting dementia, with a focus on the impacts of cognitive decline as we get older, from memory loss through to more advanced forms of dementia. The research will consider how we can support people with dementia at home and help improve their wellbeing.

Receiving an invitation to participate in this highly regarded project demonstrates Helping Hand’s strong reputation at a national level.
