Living well with dementia

Leads: Professor John Keady and Dr Simon Burrow

Working with various stakeholders, we trigger research that addresses the ambition to live well with dementia.

We work across our areas of strength at The University of Manchester and with civic, voluntary, practice and sector colleagues to trigger research from the case study level through to large-scale projects addressing the ambition to live well with dementia.

Engaging with our extensive population of people with dementia, carers and care service providers, and statutory, third sector and social enterprises, we have established a reflexive and responsive research theme whose interdisciplinarity allows us to better understand and address the major challenges that this aim presents.

Compassionate care will replace living well when this is no longer possible.
