Our Dementia research is part of Loughborough University Health and Wellbeing (HWB) Global Challenge http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/excellence/challenges/health-wellbeing/). This strategic approach supports multi-disciplinary research in bringing complex real world solutions to promote health and wellbeing across the life course. Other research priorities within HWB include Planetary Health and Anti-Microbial Resistance. Research with and for older people in Loughborough University is carried out by a number of multi-disciplinary research units/groups with different specialist interests for example:  - Dementia research for design, diagnostics and interventions http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/dementia/ - Centre for Research in Social Policy (http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/crsp/)  - Healthcare Ergonomics & Patient Safety (http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/design-school/research/environmentalergonomics/) - Life Long determinants of health and wellbeing (http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/ssehs/research/lifestyle-healthwellbeing/life-course-determinants-health-wellbeing/) We describe our research in these five overlapping and closely-related topic areas: (1) New Dynamics of Ageing; (2) Dementia: Diagnosis, Design and Interventions; (3) Getting out and about (Transport ); (4) Working Later; (5) Health, Wellbeing and Safety for Older People
