RESEARCH PAPER

Dr. Beatriz Cardona, Senior Research Fellow, 3Bridges, Adjunct Fellow, Macquarie University
Amal Madani, General Manager, Home & Health Services

On June 12, at the National Dementia Conference in Melbourne, Amal Madani and Beatriz Cardona shared the early findings on the research-based model of care implemented at 3Bridges Mindful Dementia Care, highlighting the impact on people living with dementia and their carers.

In 2023, 3Bridges implemented an Adaptive Coping model of care, Mindful Dementia Care. This model of care offers a range of psychosocial activities, aiming to support different adaptation areas, such as dealing with disabilities, developing an adequate care relationship with caregivers, preserving an emotional balance and positive self-image, developing, and maintaining social relationships, and dealing with an uncertain future. The research focuses on the journey of a selection of participants actively engaging in the Mindful Dementia Care service.
