Understanding dementia research
Every day, people with dementia, carers and healthcare professionals all over Europe are taking part in research projects aimed at improving in some way the lives of people with dementia and their carers. The objectives of individual projects differ. Some may be aimed at finding a cure, a better way to treat the symptoms or disease or identifying risk or preventive factors, whereas others may be more focused on improving the quality of life of people with dementia, findings ways to provide better support for carers and investigating different care practices. Alzheimer Europe is in the process of developing a Dementia Research Observatory, the purpose of which is to provide people with information which might help them come to a decision regarding their possible participation in research.
