Frailty and elderly care

Our aims

We aim to improve the quality of life for the elderly and stroke survivors, as well as their carers, and are continuously seeking new research innovations within the elderly care and stroke sector. We have established excellent relations with external collaborators across the nation to implement and elevate the efficacy of multi-regional research, including large scale cluster randomised controlled trials.

We host two of the world’s largest stroke rehabilitation trials to date – Training Caregivers After Stroke (TRACS) and the LoTS care (longer term stroke care) system of care trial.
