What is the Housing and Dementia Research Consortium?

Why might you want to join

Dementia is a major challenge for all of us and has escalated in importance on the public policy agenda. With the right support and early diagnosis people living with dementia can have a good quality of life. We know housing is a major part of the solution to living independently for longer, however, the evidence base on housing issues is limited.

Who are we?

The HDRC was founded in 2008 to address the evidence gap and is now the largest UK network of organisations and individuals specifically committed to research into accommodation and care for people with dementia.

The HDRC currently has around 70 members, about half of which are providers and commissioners of accommodation and care for older people. The rest are other interested parties including university researchers, architects, assistive technology providers, health and social care providers, independent consultants and representatives from third sector organisations….
