Ageing & Dementia
Worldwide, the demographic profile of societies is changing, resulting in ageing populations. As society ages, the prevalence of dementia also increases. BU researchers from a range of disciplines and practice backgrounds conduct research that contributes to (and is informed by) policy and practice, using theory and evidence to make a difference to the everyday issues an ageing society faces.
The UK has an ageing population and problems with care, dementia and quality of life are an important societal concern. Read about the latest news, projects and research developments in this theme here.
