Event description

Description

Are you a patient, health care professional, carer or relative of someone living with dementia?

This event raises awareness of the disease and the support available by encouraging open discussions and the sharing of personal experiences.

Through a varied programme, including keynote speeches from people currently living with dementia, carers, and experts in the field, this event will enable you to:

  • manage the challenges and transitions through the dementia care pathway
  • gain an understanding of the support that we provide and what is available within the local community, and understand the value of support
  • share experiences
  • network and access support through group and 1:1 discussions
  • attend a 1:1 Admiral Nurse Clinic, upon request (register on the day)
  • take part in a virtual dementia tour (limited places, allocated on the day)
  • support inclusion and diversity
  • develop professionally and personally - delegates will be given a certificate of attendance to support CPD

Who would benefit from attending?

Health care professionals in acute and primary care, patients, carers and family members.
