Research offers us hope.

It is through research that we can understand what causes dementia, develop effective treatments, improve care and hopefully one day find a cure.

There is also research that involves social and psychological programs to support people with dementia and their families. These trial programs include supporting people with physical activity, musical therapy and art, cognitive stimulation and support programs for caregivers.
