According to the Alzheimer’s Society, by next year there will be 850,000 people living with dementia in the country. By 2025 there will be more than 1m people who have the condition.
With the Prime Minister’s Dementia Challenge soon to come to an end, it is important to reflect on what has been achieved and explore how best to maintain the momentum and commitment to improving dementia care, research and diagnosis rates post April 2015.
Capita Conferences’ Improving Dementia Care conference, taking place on the 26th March in Central London, comes as the Dementia Challenge nears its end and all health and care professionals look to ensure continued improvement across all aspects of dementia care.
This event provides you with a forum to explore best practice in the commissioning of integrated care and support using the Better Care Fund and increasing diagnosis rates through effective memory assessment. Share learning on how best to promote brain health, prevent the onset of dementia and provide person centred and coordinated post diagnostic support.
Hear how to overcome the challenges of creating dementia friendly communities and hospitals with environments designed to meet the needs of dementia sufferers and their carers. Share the experiences of award winning dementia improvement programmes and ensure you are fully prepared for the impact of new statutory duties within the Care Act in relation to people caring for those with dementia.
Book your place today and learn from key speakers across health, social care, housing and the voluntary sector and continue to deliver advances along the whole dementia pathway.
