Dementia

With an ageing population, the incidence of dementia is set to rise. This meeting explores our understanding of dementia, recent research, the impact on the individual and carers, and the management, with contributions ranging from a nationally  recognised medical expert to a carer of a person with dementia. This meeting should be of interest to all of us, but particularly those who care for the elderly, whether in a professional or personal capacity.
