WA Centre for Health and Ageing


The Western Australian Centre for Health and Ageing (WACHA) is dedicated to researching issues associated with ageing in order to extend healthy life. As the Australian population ages, this area of research is becoming increasingly vital. Ageing is a complex issue WACHA's researchers are addressing the gap in our knowledge by investigating common health conditions associated with ageing, such as dementia, mild cognitive impairment, falls, depression and frailty.

To date the Centre has achieved notable success in cognitive impairment, mental health and Indigenous ageing.

WACHA is partnered with the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research and The University of Western Australia and is a hospital based research centre.  For further information visit the WACHA website
