A Collaborative Research Project
Through a collaborative research project we seek to support a highly improved Dementia Friendly Community, with a multi-level phased approach to research, investigation, collaboration and co-design.
The project goal, is to provide a blue-print for new Community-based drop-in Centres which can be successfully and feasibly rolled out in Queensland. They must offer an appealing and functional solution as a proactive and healthy response to the vast risks associated with increased numbers of people with dementia living in their own homes in the broader community.
Our focus is improved cognition, health and wellbeing for people with Dementia who are otherwise vulnerable, dependent and/or at risk of harm or rapid deterioration physically and/or psychologically.
Mission Cognition is intended to include input from a range of collaborators and is designed to demonstrate how a cross-sector partnership can be innovative in establishing age and dementia- friendly communities.
The goals include ensuring sufficient commercial and social success to both support community and be viably replicated.
Through a phased project approach, Mission Cognition will aim to find out more and use it for good.
