'Dementia Village' at Healthcare Innovation Expo5th March 2013
A major dementia event is being hosted by the Department of Health in London on 13 and 14 March.
It will take place at the Healthcare Innovation Expo at ExCeL where a dedicated area of the exhibition hall will be devoted to a ‘Dementia Village’ to showcase good practice and innovation in dementia care, dementia friendly communities and research.
The village will contain a main stage for speakers, a village green, and bandstand with leisure and entertainment activities.
There will also be a house which will help demonstrate how support can be offered to enable people with dementia and their carers to live well.
Other features will include a school hosting workshops and sessions enabling people to become Dementia Friends while a ‘high street’ will house a number of organisations taking innovative approaches to helping people living with dementia, and a cinema will show dementia-related films.
Healthcare Innovation Expo is the largest healthcare innovation event in Europe and aims to spread innovations that have a significant impact on improving the quality of patient care and productivity in the UK.
Exhibitors include many of the new NHS organisations such as the NHS Commissioning Board.
