Meredith Gresham Head of Research webv2

The Dementia Centre leads and collaborates in multidisciplinary research to make a direct and positive impact.

Our consulting services, educational outreach and clinical services are underpinned by evidence created through research.

We use our data repositories and research findings to inform how we deliver our services, and we learn from the people we serve about issues that need to be answered through research.

The Dementia Centre, HammondCare, has extensive collaborations with research organisations in Australia and around the world to deliver a broad international perspective on issues that affect the lives of people with dementia, their families, and what, how and when services are provided.

Partnered Research

HammondCare collaborates with research organisations across Australia and around the world to deliver a broad international perspective on issues that affect the lives of people with dementia, their families, and what, how and when services are provided.

Between 2012 and 2020, we supported the Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre (CDPC) at the University of Sydney. Resources and evidence developed out of that partnership are available at the CDPC website.
