Charity description

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. The Research Institute for the Care of Older People (known as RICE) is a Bath based independent charity dedicated to improving the lives of older people, especially those diagnosed with dementia, through research, treatment and care.

Please donate to support our cause. Since our formation in 1985 we have developed specialist knowledge of dementia and undertake research of national and international importance. Additionally, for residents of Bath and North East Somerset we offer a Memory Clinic service which is involved in diagnosis, treatment and care. Many of our patients are offered the opportunity to participate in clinical and research studies carried out at the RICE Centre and some are able to benefit from the free Cognitive Stimulation Therapy courses which we run several times a year. We are also very aware of the important role that carers play and run free Carers Courses several times a year. With an ageing population the number of people diagnosed with dementia is expected to rise significantly yet research into the disease lags behind.

RICE is committed to further expand its research programme so that we can improve early diagnosis, limit the impact of disease symptoms and slow disease progression
