Westminster Insight’s Improving Dementia Care Conference explores key Government priorities building on the Dementia Challenge 2020, implementing NICE guidelines and learning from CQC inspection findings to build a culture of continuous improvement for dementia services.

Including exemplary case studies of what is working across health, social care, housing, local government and communities. From successful integrated care models, creating dementia friendly communities, to carer support and public awareness promotions.

Delegates will also explore considerations for expanding and upskilling the dementia care workforce and will hear views and opinions directly from people living with dementia and their carers.
