A recent study has identified a range of barriers which impede community engagement in dementia risk-reduction behaviours across the lifespan.
Professor Kaarin Anstey has developed a research brief providing an overview of new research that provides accurate tools for assessing safety risk and programs to maintain driver skills for as long as possible.

As Australia's prison population continues to age, there is a pressing need to address under-detected cognitive decline faced by this often-overlooked group.
A new study has highlighted the growing need for dedicated services to support older people subject to homelessness.
Homelessness among older people is a growing issue in Australia, with many facing numerous challenges such as poor health, depression and limited access to healthcare services. In Australia, it is estimated that over 116,000 people are homeless of whom 16% are aged 55 and over.
Associate Professor Claudia Hillenbrand, Director of Research Imaging NSW (RINSW), shares with the Institute an overview of the facility – including how it can be used for ageing research and how members are able to access this infrastructure.
