Abstract

Despite very welcome increases in investment in research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease and other the causes of dementia, it seems that a breakthrough is still some years away. In the meantime the numbers of people living will dementia are expected to continue to increase, and it seems that this will happen at a faster rate than the numbers of potential carers. The MODEM project (Modelling Outcomes and Cost Impacts of Interventions for Dementia), a large collaborative research project based at the LSE, will be modelling how we can better the meet the needs of people living with dementia and their carers by 2030, using the best available evidence.
