Northamptonshire Dementia Research and Innovation Centre (NDRIC)

The Northamptonshire Dementia Research and Innovation Centre (NDRIC) is based in the Faculty of Health, Education and Society. Underpinning all of NDRIC’s work is a commitment to ensuring the centrality of the ‘voices’ of people with dementia, including those with a younger onset, and carers.

NDRIC works in collaboration with health and social care providers, voluntary organisations, students, and the public to design and develop contemporary and innovative approaches to the provision of person-centred community-based care and support for people living with dementia and their carers. We are a research and innovation hub focusing on early diagnosis, community-based post diagnostic interventions, and social support for people with dementia and carers.

People with dementia want to live normally in safe and accepting communities. We bring together researchers, educationalists, and innovators who are interested in actively promoting personal independence, social integration and normalisation. NDRIC builds upon their lived experience and expertise in establishing person-centred community-based psychosocial support networks; diagnostic processes and post diagnostic support mechanisms in young onset dementia; assistive technologies, developing integrated care in community settings; and neurological disease and portable balance measurement.
