Wide ranging research on dementia is taking place around the globe for a cure as well as managing the condition.
From this we are continually learning new information on how dementia develops and how to manage the condition. While there is no cure at the moment, new drugs are coming through and some show benefits in treating some of the symptoms for given periods. By keeping abreast with developments, we able to learn and apply the latest techniques in supporting our clients. Our clients can benefit from collaboration between BMF and hospitals, academic institutions, pharmaceutical companies and other organizations.
To that effect we are already collaborating with institutions in South Africa and overseas. In South Africa we work closely with the Psychiatry Department at King Dinuzulu Hospital and other community organizations such as Zibambeleni. Overseas we collaborate with East London NHS Foundation and Kings College both in the United Kingdom.
