About this event

The Alzheimer’s Show Digital Hub is a series of educational webinars on a wide range of topics relevant to everyone in the dementia community affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia – whether you are a carer, family member, or healthcare professional - who can use them as part of their CPD.

Brought to you by the organisers of The Alzheimer’s Show, this two-day programme of online talks and discussions will bring together leading experts in the field, including voices of the lived experience, specialist trainers, and key speakers from our partners Alzheimer’s Society and Dementia UK.

Challenging some of the myths surrounding dementia, this event will provide a real insight into the latest approaches and techniques, recognising the importance of always acknowledging the ‘whole’ person rather than focusing on the brain in isolation.
