The Alzheimer’s Dementia and Care Show

February 3, 2023

Now in its 10th year, The Alzheimer’s Dementia and Care Show is the UK’s leading event for care providers, healthcare professionals, families, and carers. We caught up with Admiral Nurse Jo Freeman who will be hosting drop-in clinics at the event, to find out more.

What is The Alzheimer’s Dementia and Care Show?

“The Alzheimer’s show is an event held yearly in London, which covers many aspects of dementia it includes Admiral Nurse Clinics, talks by both experts in the field and experts by lived experience, stands that promote new products and much more.”

Who is the show for?

“The event is for anyone who has an interest in dementia – people living with dementia, carers, and people working in the field. I last year I spoke with a group of Nurses who had travelled over from the Isle of Weight just to attend the show.”

What can attendees expect to learn from the show?

“There is so much to learn, and people will gain different things from the show. For some people it’s the chance to attend a face-to-face appointment with an Admiral Nurse, for others it may be to listen to talks and gain an understanding of dementia or find information or a product on a particular subject.”

What were some of your personal highlights from when you previously attended the show?

“For me the highlight is always taking part in the clinics. I love being able to spend quality time with people who often have questions and concerns that they may not have had the opportunity to discuss with anyone else. I also enjoy listening to the speakers between clinics and visiting some of the stalls to see what new innovations there may be that I can use in my work as an Admiral Nurse on the Admiral Nurse Dementia Helpline.”

What are you most looking forward to at this year’s show?

“There is always a sense of anticipation before the show as you know that you will be meeting with colleagues and other people whose passion is supporting those living with dementia. I always come away having learnt something new that enhances my role.”
