Petition for More Emphasis on Care Research

ZEST Dementia & Aged Care is proud to support Professor Wendy Moyle from Griffith University in requesting an increase to government funding for vital dementia and care research.

Please add your support too!

_

Dear Colleagues,

More than 330,000 Australians are already living with dementia and thousands more will develop dementia before a cure or improved treatments are found. It is imperative that research funding does not neglect the needs of these people, and finding the best ways to care for people with dementia, to assist their family carers, and to translate research into evidence-based practice is of the utmost importance.

Thank you to those of you who contributed to the writing of this petition.  This is most appreciated.  

 I ask if you will please sign the petition at the site link below and send on to your friends and colleagues to also sign asap as the Federal Budget will be announced next month.  Kind regards and heartfelt thanks for contributing to this important cause.
