Neil’s research interest is the public health of dementia and the wellbeing of older people. He is currently researching how voluntary sector organisations are commissioned to support older people in the community. This is part of a research programme called Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care, funded by National Institute of Health Research.

Have you seen the recent Alzheimer’s Society high impact TV advert?* It’s dramatic! And at the point where it changes from disquietingly bleak to rousingly positive (don’t want to spoil it) the voiceover suddenly announces:

I feel very honoured to have been awarded an Alzheimer’s Society knowledge exchange fellowship. With this funding I will be working with colleagues in Netherlands to share expertise about dementia care in the community.

We missed Rob at a recent event about involving people with dementia and carers in research. It was a shock to hear that he was in hospital, but I still somehow expected him to pull through.

I think people ‘get’ Dementia-Friends or even Dementia-Champions and associated campaigns and events. Dementia-Friendly Communities (or cities) I think may require a bit more work to convey to many people.

Academics are generally discreet about how their initial ideas for a research project develop. There are lots of reasons for this - some are rational, other reasons can seem a little 'paranoid'.
