Why this conference?
Although it is widely recognised that care planning and co-ordination are essential for people with dementia approaching the end of life, and their carers, still too little is being done to make it happen. With 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 dying with dementia, this is a critical challenge for everyone interested in dementia care and end of life care.
This conference will bring together experts from across health and social care, as well as an international perspective, to consider new approaches to care planning and co-ordination and collaboration across sectors. Delegates will hear from people who have set up innovative services and learn from their experience. They will hear about the evidence for change.
