Change of Date: from 6th March to Tuesday 12th September 2018
This conference addresses the challenge of dementia in Scotland and the strategy and resources to combat it, discusses how to reduce the risks of developing dementia and focuses on preparing for living with early stage dementia for people with the condition. It will also look at the services that can be put in place to support carers and the role of service providers.
Dementia affects around 90,000 people in Scotland and, as people get older, they are increasingly at risk of developing the condition. With an ageing population, Scotland faces major challenges in trying to minimise the scale of dementia and to deliver the services, care and resources which people and their carers require to manage this condition.
This conference is structured to discuss the response to dementia in three ways:
The conference will feature practical case studies, evidence from successful project work and perspectives from those delivering best practice in both prevention and preparing for managing dementia. It will assess how best principles can be applied across the range of circumstances and symptoms with which dementia manifests and the role and expectations of care service organisations and individuals in supporting people with dementia.
