The fight to end dementia

Anglicare first joined forces with KaRa MINDS, a neurological research lab, in 2012 to carry out a clinical study to identify those most at risk of dementia. At the time, the research was field-leading – the first of its kind to be conducted in a retirement village!

Today, Anglicare continues its commitment to support cutting-edge dementia research because we understand its great importance. Research leads to innovative, new treatments and therapies that will improve your quality of life. Research is the key to unlocking better ways to delay and, ultimately, end, dementia.
