"Annabelle’s commitment to improving dementia care is absolutely inspiring, and all of us at the Centre and across the University value her significant contribution to dementia education.”
Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal & Vice-Chancellor at UWS, said: “At UWS, we are committed to providing world-leading dementia education in partnership with Alzheimer Scotland. Universities can make a huge difference to people’s lives, and I am thrilled that our education and research is having a transformative impact on what is a world-wide challenge.
“We are extremely proud of our partnership with Alzheimer Scotland, and the difference it is making, not only to those living with dementia, but their carers, families, and local communities. The reach of our work in this area is fantastic and I am also proud of everyone involved in our dementia studies, including those working in the Carer’s Academy, our Dementia Champions, and of course our UWS nursing students. I look forward to seeing the rewards of our new collaborations.”
Henry Simmons, Chief Executive of Alzheimer Scotland, said: “This has been another remarkable year for the Alzheimer Scotland Centre for Policy and Practice. Our shared aspiration of translating evidence-based research into meaningful policy and practice has again been strongly delivered. The impressive breadth of innovation, research and practice work the Centre continues to lead on is quite remarkable, and it is clear that the dedication and motivation of all the team to make such a huge difference is the true driving force behind the success of the Centre.”
