Exploring Rehabilitation, Ageing & Independent Living 


A debut photographic exhibition by the new RAIL Rehabilitation, Ageing and Independent Living Research Centre at Monash University that investigates community perspectives on intersections of health, ageing, rehabilitation and disability to build independent living. 

With Australian life expectancy increasing, so too has the prevalence of chronic disease and disability. Our systems, services and economy must be equipped to meet the growing costs and needs of all Australians.

Monash University’s new RAIL Research Centre – located at the Monash Peninsula Campus – has been designed to address this growing need. Our Centre focuses on three key streams of research in order to bring the biggest benefit to the community: Rehabilitation, Ageing and Independent Living.

The Rehabilitation, Ageing and Independent Living Research Centre will transform approaches to health, aged care, disability and support service delivery. Through our research and partnerships, we’ll deliver community impact by creating efficient support models, capable of serving people with complex health conditions, and improving how people live with greater independence and quality of life across the lifespan.

A vital part of the work of the Rehabilitation, Ageing and Independent Living Research Centre is collaborating with those people most expert in the areas of Rehabilitation, Ageing and Independent Living – people with lived experience of these issues.
