Salford Institute for Dementia Conference
An estimated 676,000 people in England are living with dementia. This figure is expected to double over the next 30 years as the country’s population ages, posing a serious challenge to the NHS, our social care system and society as a whole.
In partnership with The Salford Institute for Dementia, this programme is built around The Government’s “Challenge on Dementia 2020” which aims to make England the “best country in the world for dementia care, support, research and awareness” by the end of the decade.
The Salford Institute for Dementia Conference will help you to develop a greater understanding of how we can actually create a society where every person with dementia, and their carers and families, receive high quality, compassionate care from diagnosis through to end of life care. Launched in 2013, The Salford Institute for Dementia designs dementia-friendly buildings, gardens, urban spaces and transport networks where those with the condition and their carers can live with meaning and purpose. This conference will provide an opportunity for delegates to visit the University’s Dementia Hub, which aims to be an outreach centre for the public to access the latest research and ideas about living well with dementia.
Join us at the Salford Institute for Dementia Conference to hear the latest developments in dementia care and support, and examples of best practice from leading organisations across the health and social care sector. You will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest policies, projects and emerging models of care, as well as sharing your own stories and experiences with the conference and contributing to wider thinking about dementia in England.
