Dementia UK at The Alzheimer’s Show, 7-8 June

May 7, 2019
Admiral Nurse clinic

We are delighted to be offering Admiral Nurse clinic sessions at the Alzheimer’s show at Olympia, London.

Our highly experienced Admiral Nurses will be there to provide specialist support to families affected by dementia. Due to the demand and popularity of the clinics, time is regrettably limited so we advise that you have in mind a particular area or concern that you would like to discuss. You can always follow this up by contacting our free Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline where we can provide ongoing advice and support, and we will have a variety of leaflets available on the day that focus on many of the clinical and practical matters that arise when caring for a loved one with dementia. To pre-book contact clinics@dementiauk.org or simply come to our stand and ask us for an appointment.

We also have members of staff giving talks at the show. These include:

Prevention and Risk Reduction – Paul Edwards, Director of Clinical Services

Friday 7th June – Talks & Topics Theatre 10.50 – 11.20

How should we think about prevention and risk reduction for dementia? Are there key things we can do to help reduce our risks and what can we change in our lifestyles?

The sandwich generation and know your rights – Paul Edwards, Director of Clinical Services

Saturday 8th June – Alzheimer’s Matters Theatre 14.30 – 14.55

In the UK we have a growing number of sandwich carers. What can we do to help carers who have both caring, work and family responsibilities?

Choosing the right care home – Tracey Carter, Consultant Admiral Nurse

Saturday 8th June – Alzheimer’s Matters Theatre 15.00 – 15.30

What can trigger the necessity to move into a Care Home setting and how to find the right Care Home for your loved one. How do we know what excellent Dementia Care look likes within a Care Home?
