Dementia research, local dementia support networks and initiatives
The Salford Institute for Dementia at the University of Salford will be proudly hosting the Alzheimer’s Research UK North West Public Engagement Event on the afternoon of the 17th May 2017 which falls within National Dementia Awareness Week. This event will be held in collaboration with The University of Manchester, Manchester Metropolitan University and The University of Liverpool.
Through interaction with academic researchers and local dementia service/information providers the aim of this event is to help the public understand the bio-psych-social nature of dementia and local advances in dementia research, whilst learning more about local dementia support networks and initiatives.
This event aims to work collaboratively with people directly impacted by dementia and provide an opportunity to celebrate the successes of local dementia associated projects. This interactive afternoon will combine traditional poster presentations, lab tours, information points, performances and family friendly activities which will take place at the Peel Park Campus at the University of Salford. We will also be celebrating the launch of the ‘Hub’ space and the new dementia friendly garden at the Allerton Building, with opportunities for visitors to view the internal space, meet the team, talk to our dementia associates and participate in activities in our new dementia friendly garden.
