Research Summary:

DHSc in progress. Research focus is on the experience of family carers transitioning into a caring role for an elderly family member as they become increasingly frail. The experience of family carers searching for information and help needed to care and support their elder/s potentially informs and enables ageing-in-place. Family-carer experiences of adjusting and finding their role in relation to the increasing frailty of their elder potentially informs health service support for families and elders in the community

Current Research Projects:

Age-friendly urban communities for older people
