Dementia Friendly Conference will be held on Thursday 21 September 2017.
The purpose of the conference is to raise awareness of how people with dementia can continue living in their community, where the physical and social environments of life are interlinked and equally important with communities designed to engage people, provide opportunity for valued active participation, comfort and safety.
