Intergenerational Strategies for Healthy Brain Ageing in Indigenous Australians

Back to search results

Healthy brain ageing is a lifelong endeavour and contributes to dementia prevention, among other benefits. Internationally, there is some evidence that intergenerational programs have significant benefit for cognitive functioning and wellbeing in older people, as well as the young. This project will explore evidence for intergenerational programs internationally and in Indigenous communities across Australia. The project will integrate Indigenous perspectives to develop culturally safe and effective intergenerational strategies for healthy brain ageing and dementia prevention, and pilot a program to determine the impact in terms of acceptability and feasibility, as well as cognitive, physical and psychological benefits.
