Dementia Awareness Week 15-21 May 2016

Published: 20 May 2016

This week is Dementia Awareness Week from 15 through to the 21, organised by Alzheimer’s Society.

Health Sciences has been awarded funding of over £188,000 from Alzheimer’s Society for a unique research project into the effectiveness and acceptability of using Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technologies to promote safer walking for people with dementia. The project is unique as it centralises the experience of people with dementia to find out more about the effectiveness and acceptability of technology use, and it includes the police.

The project is being overseen by Dr Ruth Bartlett and managed by Dr Tula Brannelly. Continue reading here. Find out more about Dementia Awareness Week here.
