Innovation in dementia event for carers and professionals
The Bromley Dementia Action Alliance (supported by the Bromley Dementia Support Hub) is holding its second annual meeting to showcase recent innovations in dementia support and how Bromley is becoming a dementia-friendly community.
This free event is for family dementia carers and professionals and will be attended by the Mayor of Bromley, Cllr Kathy Bance MBE and guest speakers from the Bromley NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, local Metropolitan Police, Alzheimer’s Society, Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust and Mytime Active.
Topics covered will include how assistive technologies can help people with dementia to live well, how they can stay safe in their own homes and local community and how local services are supporting people with dementia who live in care homes, when they have to go into hospital.
As well as finding out about local dementia support services available at information stalls, people attending the event will also hear from a family carer, Lorraine McGlone, who cared for her husband with dementia. After his recent presentation to the United Nations (UN) Committee on Rights of Persons with Disabilities, dementia ambassador and speaker, Keith Oliver, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease at 55 years old, will also be speaking about his experience of living well with dementia.
There is no need to book a place at this free event – just turn up on the day.
