The full line-up for the Dementia Care 25th anniversary conference and charity black tie gala, which takes place at The Sage in Gateshead on Thursday 25 October, has just been announced.
Boasting an incredible line-up of keynote speakers and experts from across the healthcare sector, including Professor Louise Robinson, director of the Newcastle University Institute for Ageing, Rob Webster, chief executive of the South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Lesley Palmer, chief architect for the Dementia Services Development Centre at the University of Stirling, the inaugural conference aims to bring practitioners together to share knowledge and discuss the future of dementia services and care.
The glittering evening reception that follows will be a celebration of Dementia Care’s incredible work over the past 25 years. With a delicious 3-course dinner and entertainment provided by comedian Steve Day, who will bring his ‘Adventures in Dementia’ show from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and local feel-good party band, Los Capitanes, the evening is bound to be a lot of fun! Dementia Care will also be revealing their exciting new rebrand on the night to mark the occasion.
“We are really excited about the 25th anniversary conference and the black tie gala,” said Dr Fraser Quin, chief executive at Dementia Care.
“For 25 years, Dementia Care has been providing expert support and advice to both people living with dementia and their families and carers. The event will be one big celebration in recognition of all that we have achieved and all that is still to come as we relaunch the charity under our new ‘Dementia Matters’ branding and continue to establish ourselves as the North East’s leading provider of dementia specific care.”
