Salford Institute for Dementia

Introducing our international centre of research, education and innovation in dementia-care.

The Salford Institute for Dementia was launched towards the end of 2013 to conduct vital research into living well with dementia.

The Institute designs dementia-friendly buildings, gardens, urban spaces and transport networks where those with the condition and their carers can live with meaning and purpose.
