UK Dementia Research Institute Care Research and Technology

The UK DRI CR&T brings together a diverse team of researchers who can harness recent innovations to create new technologies that will deliver the highest quality dementia care in the home. Researchers are investigating new ways to keep people independent in their homes, improve their general health and sleep, and reduce confusion and agitation. The work is guided by people with dementia and their caregivers, focusing on what matters most to them.
