You are warmly invited to our annual conference #Together4Dementia. 

This year’s Together for Dementia conference is bigger than ever before, with world class speakers taking to the stage to share their insight and knowledge of dementia.

We have moved to a new and larger venue to accommodate for a larger audience. This year’s conference is taking place in We the Curiousa science education centre in central Bristol, close to Bristol Cathedral and the Watershed.

Our chair for the afternoon session, including the panel discussion, will be BBC television and radio presenter Ali Vowles.

The speakers are as follows, and we will publish details of the panellists shortly.

Sir Steve Webb, former Minister for Pensions, now with Royal London, will discuss how we should be funding care of the elderly. Funding social care is very topical debate, which is frequently making headlines. Sir Steve will reflect on the needs of an ageing population. The talk will be on 'What is the answer to the social care funding problem?

Marjorie Creek, from Kitsons Solicitors, will share her experiences of working with people living with dementia, through her careers as a nurse and, later, a solicitor.

Dr Liz Coulthard, North Bristol NHS Trust/University of Bristol, who heads the BRACE part-funded ReMemBr Group, on her research into sleep and dementia. Sleep and dementia has been an area of great interest to researchers for some time and this talk will explore sleep factors that may lead to the development of dementia.

Brand Biology, a company that provides training in dementia awareness. There will be a short presentation involving two actors. Acting out situations enables the audience to understand dementia on a deeper level and reflects true-to-life experiences of those living with dementia.

   

Nicci Gerrard, dementia rights campaigner and author of 'What Dementia Teaches Us About Love.' Nicci’s passion and drive for change in social care will offer a compassionate talk on how we care for our loved ones. Her talk will offer us all fresh insight in to dementia and the relationship we have with it.

Because we are using a larger centre with better facilities, our costs have increased and, despite generous sponsorship again from The James Tudor Foundation, we need to ask for a modest charge for attendance, to protect BRACE's funds for dementia research.

A delegate place costs £12. For this, you will have five hours of presentations and a panel discussion, plus an opportunity to visit exhibitors, with a buffet lunch and refreshments included.
