Celebrated journalist Baroness Joan Bakewell to present awards at the International Dementia Conference
Baroness Bakewell was appointed as a voice for older people by the UK government in 2008 and she has a fantastic record as an advocate for older women in public roles, especially the media. Dame Joan is a life peer in the House of Lords.
A recent Alzheimer's Disease International report has outlined that dementia world wide is a women’s issue, as dementia disproportionately affects women as carers, care workers and people affected by dementia. Dame Joan has a voice that is heard on care issues at top levels in government.
The International Dementia Conference will celebrate the best in dementia care and outline new research in the area. People with dementia and their carers are welcome at this great opportunity to share and learn what is new.
The Care & Dementia Show that is an integral part of the event will include hundreds of exhibitors showing off new products that really can take dementia care forward whether at home, in a care home or in hospital. It is an event not to be missed.
