    The ageing population in the UK is prompting a massive increase in demand for dementia services. The financial costs of dementia in the UK are estimated to be £27 billion and with the number of people with the disease predicted to top 1 million by 2025 these figures will spiral. Back in 2012, the Dementia Challenge was launched with the aim of making England the best country in the world for dementia care and support by 2020. But, in 2018, the NHS and adult social services are struggling to meet existing demand let alone transform the quality of care nationally. Our expert panel will discuss the challenges facing providers going forward, and outline how quality can be provided in care even when resources are under pressure.

    • Home Care
    Transparency in care for both residents and care staff. Almost 400,000 elderly are living in care homes throughout the UK - that fact and the projected increasing demand for beds as the incidence of dementia increases over the next 30 years warrants serious discussion and consideration for safety monitoring in public areas in care homes to be made mandatory.
    • Business
    • Dementia
    • Residential Care
    An introduction to the development and use of motion-activated floor, wall and table projections in the care sector particularly those living with dementia.
    The talk will examine the social opportunities these interactions offer, the potential physical/mental benefits and the importance of meaningful content and a person-centred approach. It will also focus on the opportunities for staff/carers in terms of motivation and development and the way it appeals to family members of all ages as a tool for increased communication and connectedness.
