Partnerships & collaborations


Brightwater actively seeks opportunities to work with universities and other service providers, to support and conduct research that relates to our core business of improving the lives and quality of care provided to our residents and clients.

We also aim to build capacity in our own staff and support students. Brightwater has established several valuable partnerships and collaborations.


CDPC logo Cognitive Decline Partnership Centre (CDPC) 

Brightwater is one of four industry partners working with the National Health and Medical Research Centre (NHMRC) to form a Partnership Centre focusing on cognitive and related functional decline in older people. This Partnership Centre initiative unites Brightwater with industry partners Alzheimer's Australia, HammondCare (NSW) and Helping Hand (SA) to improve the lives of people with dementia by developing, communicating and implementing research. 

It brings consumers, industry partners, researchers and clinicians together to develop relevant research questions and ensure findings are applicable to the current care environment for people with dementia.
