Meeting the Transport Needs of People with Dementia (Nov 2014)

Meeting the Transport Needs of People with Dementia is the report from a research project funded by the NSW Department of Family and Community Services, Ageing, Disability and Home Care . The Project involved an overview of the literature and fieldwork.  Having access to suitable transport is vital to maintaining a reasonable quality of life in the community but meeting the transport needs of people with dementia is difficult.  The report identifies five main areas where action is needed to improve access to suitable transport for people with dementia and their carers.
