Following on from the continued success of previous years and back by popular demand, The Annual Plymouth International Dementia Conference takes place at Plymouth Guildhall, on 12th November 2019. Chaired by Clare Casson, a familiar face from the BBC Spotlight Team reporting, producing and presenting at BBC Spotlight for over 15 years, this year's event will showcase local, national and international solutions.
During the breaks local entertainer Chris Hancock will sing the songs of artists such as Matt Munroe, Elvis and Tom Jones. Chris has a vast experience singing to and with people with dementia and their carers across the South West.
The BBC will be broadcasting live and the conference will open with an address by local BBC radio presenter David FitzGerald.
As a first for this year's conference we will beam in live "members of the Global Dementia Group" from America, Canada, Australia, Singapore, Japan, Europe, China and other countries from around the globe. The conference audience will be able to ask questions of these individuals and hear how they are supporting individuals with dementia and their carers.
The conference is led by Ian Sherriff B.E.M Academic Partnership Lead for Dementia Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry University of Plymouth, Chair of the Prime Ministerial Champion Rural and Air Transport Groups and Claire Puckey of Plymouth City Council. Ian and Claire both said:
"We are hugely excited by the line-up for this year's conference. Not only will we be covering issues that affect those with dementia and the people who care for them in Plymouth, but we will also hear how similar issues are being approached across the globe".
