  • Plymouth Guildhall, Royal Parade, Plymouth

Save event

Following on from six successful years, the University of Plymouth and Plymouth City Council are delighted to be hosting the Plymouth International Dementia Conference on Friday 4 May 2018.

This inspirational, innovative and unique conference will draw on arts and social science, and offer a global perspective on the latest projects helping and empowering people with dementia.

From protecting people from scams and to hearing a perspective from the World Health Council on Dementia, the variety of international speakers and topics from China, Japan and the UK have the potential to open up new ways of working and develop innovative methods of supporting people with dementia and their carers.

There is widespread recognition at the highest level of all governments around the world about the present and potential impacts on dementia. The search for ways to enhance the quality of life for those affected is a constant and complex one. 

The aim of the conference is to share ideas and thoughts on projects that have the potential to open up new ways of developing fresh perspectives and ground breaking solutions.

The conference will be opened and broadcast live by David (Fitz) Fitzgerald, BBC Radio Devon, and chaired by Angela Rippon CBE, Ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Please view the programme for details of confirmed keynote speakers and activities. 

Registration for this event opens from 08.00 for an 08:50 start. We aim to finish at around 16:00.
