Research

Research is critically important to those of us with dementia. The only way a cure will be found is through research. And the services and supports we need are developed through research! So we need to be engaged in research – certainly as participants, but more importantly as partners!

We need researchers to know what we want, and what is important to our lives. Equally important is that WE have a say not only in WHAT is studied, but HOW it is planned and implemented. We are hopeful that you will help us in these efforts!

REACH Meetings: 11:00-12:00pm

Research Opportunities
