Improving community service uptake and wellbeing for people with dementia and their carers during the early stages of the condition, is the focus of a new Griffith study.
Three researchers from Griffith’s Menzies Health Institute Queensland have been recognised with an International Women’s Day Leadership Award.
Quality of life for people with dementia living in long-term care is often negatively impacted due to low levels of activity participation.
“They rush you and push you too much… and you can’t really get any good response off them”. This was just one of the family member comments from recent Griffith research regarding the acute care of their loved ones with dementia.
Griffith University has staged the spectacularly successful TEDxGriffithUniversity at its Gold Campus.
“When it comes to robots, people see them as good or bad. There is no in-between,” says Professor Wendy Moyle from Griffith’s Social Robotics Lab.
How robots can improve care for people in aged care is the focus this week (Tues 25 Nov) at Griffith University’s Social Robotics and Assistive Technology Laboratory opening.
