$34m for innovation in dementia and aged care services

The federal government has announced the winning bidders in the Dementia and Aged Care Services (DACS) research and innovation funding round, which will see 42 projects funded for the next two years to strengthen the capacity of the aged care sector to respond to consumer-directed care and the challenges of dementia.

The projects were chosen from six priority areas, including virtual care, adaptive and assistive technologies, and the development of smart home devices and platforms to enable people to live safely in their homes for longer.
