With more than 266,000 Australians now suffering from dementia and numbers expected to rise sharply as the population ages, researchers at the University of South Australia are looking at whether Transcendental Meditation or healthy lifestyle education can help to reduce stress levels and improve the quality of life of dementia caregivers. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of health.
UniSA's Dr Matthew Leach from the School of Nursing and Midwifery and lead investigator, says the well-being of those caring for dementia sufferers does not receive much attention.
''Caring for a person with dementia can be an unrelenting, physically taxing and highly stressful role,'' Dr Leach says. ''Previous research from overseas has shown relaxation therapies, such as meditation, may be effective in reducing stress and anxiety''.
The 24-week study is being led by the University of South Australia, in collaboration with RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology), the Maharishi Invincibility Centre, and Adelaide Hills Council.
