Seeing the Person: How our services can support people living with dementia in all settings

Event date: 22/09/2022

Presented by the Institute of Ageing and Health West Midlands, an interactive day, with presentations and discussions exploring how to truly see and support the physical, psychological, and social needs of people with dementia within all settings, including health, social care and prisons. The day is supported by health and social care professionals and people living with dementia.

This day is suitable for all healthcare professionals, volunteers, and all those involved in supporting people with dementia, such as friends and family members, but also and perhaps more importantly for people with dementia. The day will end with a round table discussion on where we go from here.

A brief overview of presentations is highlighted on the following page. The event is free for members and people living with dementia, tea and coffee and lunch will be provided.
