Dr Jacki Liddle’s research focusses on identifying ways to support people living with dementia to continue to participate in their communities. She has an interest in supporting people with managing driving cessation (and was a founder of the CarFreeMe program), managing life transitions related to ageing and health conditions, and continue to participate in roles and activities that are meaningful to them.
She develops technology to support people’s participation and to measure their health and wellbeing (including lifespace, a way of measuring community mobility and engaging using geolocation data). She is currently co-designing technology to support participation and communication as part of a multidisciplinary team with people living with dementia and their care partners.
