Alzheimer Scotland Annual Conference 2017

Monday 30 January 2017

The Alzheimer Scotland annual conference is the most important conference date in the diary for Scotland’s dementia community. Join us to explore the big issues – from the impact of Brexit on international research to separating fact from fiction in the world of food. 

The programme includes high-profile speakers from Scotland and around the world and hot topic parallel sessions that explore innovation in care and support. There are also plenty of networking opportunities for delegates.

Henry Simmons, Chief Executive of Alzheimer Scotland commented"Dementia is a global issue and I am delighted that we have so many high profile speakers to get to the heart of the big issues facing the dementia community in 2017. I truly believe there is something for everyone in this conference programme, and that everyone who attends will take away new ideas and learnings."

Speaking about the conference, Amanda McCarren, a Care Manager said “Alzheimer Scotland’s Annual Conference provides me with the opportunity to meet so many different people who all share the common goal of wanting to help people with dementia and their carers.”

Another former delegate Margaret Hence, who supports family member Derek who lives with dementia, added "We love the Alzheimer Scotland conferences as they are so empowering for us both.” 

This event is for everyone interested in or affected by dementia. We also have a range of sponsorship, exhibition and advertising opportunities – so if you have a product, idea or service that you want to promote to this enthusiastic and engaged audience, then the Alzheimer Scotland annual conference is the place to be.

If you care about making a difference to people with dementia, then come and join us.
