At least 850,000* people are living with dementia in the UK,
at a total cost to the economy of more than £26 billion**. Dementia has a devastating impact on not just the person living with dementia but also families, carers and wider society. Covid-19 has further exacerbated everyday challenges for people living with dementia, interrupting care, increasing loneliness and isolation, and reducing available support.
Join Westminster Insight’s Improving Dementia Care Digital Conference
to explore, how integrating health and social care
could drastically improve the provision of care for people living with dementia. Reviewing what next for the Dementia Challenge, you will hear from key organisations such as Dementia UK, NHS England and Dementia Carers Count
on how to ensure the UK is one of the best places to live for people with dementia.
Learning from international best practice, hear from the main consultant of the Hogeweyk Dementia Village based in the Netherlands
, offering a unique and holistic approach to care for residents. Working together to deliver integral care, build dementia friendly communities and understanding the vital role housing can play in the lives and wellbeing of people living with dementia.
