Mina Dannaoui

Research Assistant

I am a Research Assistant at NARI on the Befriendas Project. The Project aims to explore the impact of befriending on loneliness, depression and anxiety in older people living in residential aged care. I have previously worked with an older adult for 10 years providing her mental, physical and emotional support. We used to go for daily walks and chat about life, I found that this had a positive impact on her and improved her mood and mental health and well-being. I am interested in researching about the impact of dementia and Alzheimer’s on older adults and expanding my knowledge about the present support available to them.
