A world leading expert on caring for people with dementia brings together the latest science with practical advice for staying well and happy for as long as possible.

Everyone has a unique experience, but in general there are two possible routes with dementia.
On one track you stay as well as possible for as long as possible, living life the way you want to. On the other you go downhill faster than you need to, for reasons that are often avoidable.

Everyone would like to avoid unnecessary trouble and expense, and to delay some of the difficult situations that might arise. But sensible, practical advice on how to do this is in short supply.
People aren’t told about the remarkable services and equipment that are readily available or the simple changes to their lifestyle that can be so radical that they prevent the need to go into a care home.

In this talk by the bestselling author of Dementia: A One-Stop Guide, Professor emeritus of dementia studies June Andrews will tell you everything you need to know about living with dementia and caring for those with it. Looking beyond media sensationalism and public stigma, this talk is an unmissable opportunity to learn about the condition from an expert in the field – before it’s too late.
