About ADCC

The Advancement for Dementia Care Centre (ADCC) aims to improve the quality of life of those living with dementia by using innovation to develop new approaches to support their psychosocial needs and behavioural challenges. The ADCC aims to advance leading-edge innovation in dementia care by fostering new and existing partnerships, identifying innovators, and acting as a sustainable “living lab”, where cutting-edge technologies can be adapted, implemented in real clinical settings, and evaluated based on their practical application.

The ADCC aims to advance dementia-friendly communities through spreading and scaling up its innovations, research, and evidence-informed practices to support knowledge translation initiatives and workforce capacity-building in both the Durham Region and beyond.
