Cure and care
Dementia consistently ranks as one of our most feared conditions. There is currently no cure for dementia, though researchers around the world are desperately searching for one.
So why is it proving so hard? And how do we balance this with the urgent need for more care and support for people living with dementia today?
Here to talk us through these issues is Professor Srikanth, Director of the National Centre for Healthy Ageing (NCHA), and Director of Research at Peninsula Health. He is also Professor of Medicine in the Central Clinical School, Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences at Monash University, Melbourne Australia. He works clinically as a specialist Geriatrician with particular expertise in dementia and stroke.
