The Alzheimer’s Show has this year been given full accreditation by the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Certification Service.
The accreditation means care professionals attending the two-day event on 9-10 June in London and 23-24 June in Manchester will gain CPD points.
Jeremy Hughes, chief executive of Alzheimer’s Society, said: “Alzheimer’s Society is delighted to be partnering with The Alzheimer’s Show for the fifth year.
“It’s a great opportunity to unite experts, professionals and people affected by the condition under one roof to share knowledge and provide support.
“We’d encourage anyone affected by dementia to join the show to listen to talks, visit Alzheimer’s Society’s stand, have one-to-one sessions with our dementia advisers, experience taster sessions of the Society’s training, and learn from leading experts.”
Businesses and organisations will be offering a range of products and services, including care at home, care homes, living aids, reminiscence therapy, furniture, funding, training, telecare, assistive technology, charity support, latest research, legal services, education and financial guidance.
The Alzheimer’s Matters Theatre will host in-depth talks from leading dementia and care experts on key topics of interest for carers, relatives and professionals.
At the Talks & Topics Theatre carers will be sharing their experiences of caring for a person with dementia alongside professionals providing practical advice, including those living with dementia sharing their personal experiences.
The Law Society will also be on hand to give free legal advice, including guidance on setting up Lasting Power of Attorney, putting people’s affairs in order and providing for their future care.
