Medication management in people with dementia living in the community (2018)$9,289
Description
The number of people with dementia living in their own homes exceeds those living in residential care and expected to increase markedly with the ageing population and recent Australian Government policy initiatives encouraging people to remain supported at home. People with dementia frequently suffer from multiple medical conditions, resulting in increasingly complex medication regimes. The majority also display behavioural and psychological symptoms which are often treated with psychotropic medication, contrary to current professional guidance. Inappropriate medication use is a significant problem in residential care, yet the degree of inappropriate medication use in people with dementia living at home is uncharted. Similarly, we know that the most common complaints about residential aged care relate to medication management; however, little is known about how medication of community-dwelling people with dementia is managed. In this project we aim to: 1. Investigate the appropriateness of medication use in community-based people with dementia and, 2. Develop an increased understanding of the needs and experiences of people with dementia and the nursing, care staff, health practitioners and relatives that provide care for them with regards to medication management. The knowledge gained from this project will inform future initiatives aimed at improving the quality of medication in the increasing number of older Australians with dementia living in their own homes.

Dementia Cafes: facilitating community conversations about dementia (2017)$8,390
Description
Talking about dementia at a grass roots level can address stigma, demystify the condition, and facilitate inclusion, support and understanding of those living with Dementia. The purpose of this qualitative study is to explore the effectiveness of dementia cafs to stimulate such conversations, based in one local area. Three sessions will be held in local caf locations, and one in a community garden setting, the partnerships to do this are already established. Participants will be invited to attend through existing local networks and local advertising in newspapers, radio and notice boards. It is anticipated, based on experience of prior community events that between 20-30 people will attend each session. Pilot data (postcard feedback from participants, researcher notes, and interviews with contributors) will be thematically analysed to explore what attendees specifically seek in attending, and if the caf setting meets their needs. The analysis will allow further refinement and inclusion of the approach in a toolbox of conversation starters related to development of dementia friendly communities.

DIGnity Supported Community Gardening as a tool for enabling dementia-friendly environments (2017)$8,758
Description
DIGnity is a Participatory Action Research Program that aims to build the therapeutic capacity of three established community gardens and the surrounding community. Since February 2017, health-workers, artists and researchers have worked alongside community members, garden coordinators and volunteers in a shared public gardening space. Some of the participants in DIGnity are living with cognitive impairments, or caring for someone living with dementia. This project explores the experiences of this cohort of the DIGnity community. Using mixed qualitative methods we will ask what they see as the challenges and enablers of being in the public space of the garden and draw on their knowledge and ideas about future needs for ongoing engagement and participation. We will also explore how people with dementia contribute to the wider community through the DIGnity program, particularly the contribution toward dementia friendly public spaces.
