Welcome to The Alzheimer’s Show website, a resource for public and professionals, families, carers and those affected by Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory loss.
Whether you are a family carer, healthcare professional, person with dementia or someone who simply wants to find out more, The Alzheimer’s Show aims to inform, explain and educate. Alongside articles, digital guides, blogs and newsletters, The Alzheimer’s Show is dedicated to bringing together the dementia community in a two-day conference and exhibition at London Olympia and EventCity Manchester, showcasing products and services under one roof.
The shows give you access to a wide range of dementia experts, informative talks, practical activities, Admiral Nurses Clinics and Law Society Advice Surgery. Key spokespeople and a wide range of exhibitors will also be on hand to answer your questions and address your concerns. For more information on the conference & exhibition, click here.
We are delighted that The Alzheimer’s Show is now fully accredited by The CPD Certification Service. The whole 2 day event will enable all professional visitors to keep up to date with the latest developments and knowledge in the field of dementia and gain valuable CPD points.
HIGHLIGHTS OF the 2016 alzheimer's show
Last year’s Alzheimer’s Show was the biggest and best yet with a record number of visitors, more exhibitors and overwhelmingly positive feedback.
Popular TV presenter and Alzheimer’s Society ambassador Angela Rippon appeared on Saturday to host the talks in the main theatre and also made time to meet and greet members of the public and share her own experiences of dementia.
The show attracted the attention of the media, with a BBC crew filming highlights, including the BAT Foundation’s table tennis therapy. This specially designed table gave those with dementia a chance to exercise both mind and body.
A highlight of the event was Harry Gardner being interviewed by Angela Rippon and then performing his song in front of the Alzheimer’s Matters Theatre audience of nearly 200. He wrote the song ‘Not Alone’ for his nan.
‘I spoke to the Care Quality Commission – it’s great that if you have any concerns you can talk to them’
‘I wanted to validate that I’m doing the right things for my mum’
‘I’m trying to understand if there are other things I should be doing’
‘I’ve been fairly recently diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and really want to try and understand more about it’
‘I found the Admiral Nurses very helpful’
‘I spoke to a solicitor who gave me some information I didn’t know’
‘I looked at different activities for people with dementia and found this very interesting – some of these products should be in all of the care homes’
