Christies Care will once again be at the Alzheimer’s Show with advice and information about the benefits of live-in care for those living with Dementia.
Sarah Rampling, Booking Co-ordinator at Christies Care, will be hosting a short interactive session in the Exhibitor Workshop Theatre at 12:15 on Friday the 8th. The subject is: Delivering Person-centred Support at Home – An introduction to how receiving Person-centred Support at home can be beneficial to achieving positive outcomes.
The Alzheimer’s Show is returning for its sixth year in 2018 and will be at Olympia London on June 8 & 9. The UK’s leading event for people living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or memory loss, The Alzheimer’s Show brings help and hope to families and carers and welcomes the public and professionals.
The Alzheimer’s Show is invaluable for anyone concerned about memory loss or dementia. Research from Saga Healthcare revealed that more people feared getting dementia than cancer. A survey of 9000 people over 50 showed that 43% feared developing dementia, with women (often the main carers), 20% more likely to be worried about developing the condition than males. Dementia is now also the leading cause of death in England and Wales.
There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and 650,000 carers looking after loved ones. The practical responsibility and emotional distress can be overwhelming but help is at hand at The Alzheimer’s Show with a vast range of experts and exhibitors, speakers and advisers sharing their expertise on living with Alzheimer’s.
Who should visit
Anyone who is experiencing memory loss, has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or is living with dementia should come along to access a wealth of support and guidance on planning for their future. Families affected by Alzheimer’s, carers and professional support service providers should attend to find the latest advice, services and products to help those in their care.
About the Show
Dementia care has come a long way recently: The Alzheimer’s Show brings all the latest thinking, support, advice, practical tools and experts under one roof to help families, carers and professionals access the support and help they need. The two-day event offers advice and insight from expert speakers, the latest products and services from care exhibitors and insight and empathy from people living with dementia.
“Alzheimer’s Society is delighted to be partnering with The Alzheimer’s Show for the sixth year. It’s a great opportunity to unite experts, professionals and people affected by the condition under one roof to share knowledge and provide support. We’d encourage anyone affected by dementia to join the Show to listen to talks, visit Alzheimer’s Society’s stand, have one-to-one sessions with our dementia advisers and learn from leading experts.”
