With the care market currently estimated to be valued in excess of £55 billion to the UK economy, The Care Show is delighted to announce plans for a 2 day International Dementia Conference to run alongside The Care Show 2015, in partnership with Dementia
Services Design Centre (DSDC) University of Stirling.
The synergy of The Care Shows and the DSDC University of Stirling working together will deliver a ‘1 + 1 = 3’ scenario of a rich educational content to complement the country’s leading industry event and create many new opportunities for engagement with new visitors to The Care Shows 2015. The International Dementia Conference will be a high profile, educational platform to support the provision of care in the future and highlight how government, business and society as a whole can work together to effect change.
According to the Alzheimer’s Society, the number of those who will be affected by dementia in the UK is set to rise to 2 million by 2050 from today’s figure of 850,000. James Samuel, Event Director of The Care Show Portfolio says: “We are delighted to be working with the DSDC, as one of the world’s leading authorities in dementia design in creating a dedicated International Dementia Conference to run alongside The Care Show 2015 and add significant value to our clients.”
June Andrews of DSDC adds: “The DSDC University of Stirling is delighted to have the opportunity to work in synergy with The Care Show to create this important new platform for the UK’s vibrant care sector. This dedicated International Dementia Conference will comprise an exciting, highly educational programme for international delegates looking to understand how they can provide dementia friendly services for those affected by dementia now and in the future.”
