National health and social care charity Community Integrated Care is proud to announce that it will be the headline sponsor of The Alzheimer’s Show Manchester – a major event, which aims to provide advice and inspiration to members of the public and care professionals who support people who live with dementia.
The Alzheimer’s Show Manchester takes place on 4th & 5th July at Event City, Manchester, and will attract over 1500 people from across the North West. The event will provide direct access to the experts, information, advice and the best products and services available in the UK to anyone living with dementia, either personally or as a personal or professional carer and point visitors in the direction of local and national services that can ease the pressure.
Community Integrated Care is one of the UK’s largest social care charities. It supports over 5000 people with care and support needs living across England and Scotland. The charity supports thousands of people who live with dementia – in its own specialist services and in the community. It has been nationally and internationally recognised as being at the forefront of the dementia care sector – winning a host of prestigious awards, developing pioneering new models of dementia care and supporting research projects.
The charity will take an active role at the event, delivering a host of presentations and workshops aimed at sharing its specialist understanding with guests. It will be joined by the likes of The Rt Hon Hazel Blears MP and dementia experts from Alzheimer’s Society and University of Manchester, who will also be delivering presentations at the event.
Neil Matthewman, Chief Executive of Community Integrated Care, says: “The increasing prevalence of dementia is one of the most challenging issues that society faces today, yet, sadly, too many people don’t know where to turn when it touches their lives. The Alzheimer’s Show Manchester brings together people from across the care sector to offer vital advice and support, which is why our charity wanted to give it our full backing.”
He continues, “As one of Britain’s biggest care providers, with deep roots in the Manchester and North West communities, we feel sure that we will make a strong contribution to what will be an exceptional event.”
Nigel Ward, event director at The Alzheimer’s Show, says: “It is fantastic that we have the support of Community Integrated Care. The charity supports and understands the needs of those living with dementia, making it the ideal partner for The Alzheimer’s Show as it comes to Manchester for the first time.”
