The Association for Dementia Studies
The Association for Dementia Studies (ADS) was established in 2009 at the University of Worcester under the leadership of Professor Dawn Brooker. We are a multi-professional group of educationalists, researchers and practitioners who are expert in the field of person-centred dementia care and support. People with dementia, their families and their carers inform the work of ADS at all stages.
Our aim is to make a substantial contribution to building evidence-based practical ways of working with people living with dementia and their families that enables them to live well. We do this primarily through research, education and scholarship.
