Imagine the future of our dementia care community

We are delighted to announce a series of online meetings to imagine and co-produce the future of our dementia care community.

Thursday 19th May 10am-12noon: An Open Space event convened by the Journal for Dementia Care/Dementia Publishing and facilitated by Ladder to the Moon/Vibrant Communities.

A community for progressive dementia care practice is needed in the UK, and we want you to be part of bringing it to life. We would love you to bring your skills, experience and insights to this event or another of the online meetings we plan to hold leading up to the relaunched, live UK Dementia Congress in November. We need voices from all care settings and sectors, including people living with dementia and all carers.
