Description

Following last year’s incredibly successful event, we are thrilled to announce our second Defying Dementia Day.

This one-day event is an opportunity to bring together everybody in the North West who has an interest in dementia – staff & volunteers of dementia associations, people living with dementia, family members, clinicians, care professionals and scientists – to share and learn from one another.

The day starts at 10:00am, with registration open from 9:15am. The event will hold a wide variety of talks held in parallel sessions throughout the day, focusing on developments in research and medical initiatives, and living well with dementia. A ‘marketplace’ will be open throughout the day that will offer information on local support for people living with dementia. There will also be demonstrations and activities held throughout the day.

The conference will be chaired by Dr Penny Foulds, Lancaster University and MAC Clinical Research , and Dianne Smith, Matron for Dementia, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay Trust.

Further details on the agenda will be announced in due course.

Carers can attend free of charge, but must still register for a ticket.

Free parking is available behind the George Fox Building at visitor car parking area D (see here for the campus map).
