Brightwater Research Centre

Our research centre puts the spotlight on wellbeing

Brightwater recognises the important role that research plays in improving the lives of our residents and clients, as well as the health of the broader community.

The foundation of our research centre is built on shared ideas, expertise, passion and a commitment to making a difference. We actively seek to improve ways of supporting our residents and clients, their families, and our staff to enjoy life’s possibilities.

Our dedicated research centre strives to promote a research culture that reflects Brightwater’s mission; one that is informed by the knowledge and experience of clients, staff and collaborators, and is underpinned by evidence that can be translated into real-world outcomes through practice, policies and processes.

  • Brain health
  • Ageing well
  • Brain injury rehabilitation
