PRACTICAL ADVICE, SERVICES, HELP AND INFORMATION

BRINGING THE DEMENTIA COMMUNITY TOGETHER

9-10 JUNE 2017 OLYMPIA LONDON

HIGHLIGHTS OF the 2016 alzheimer's show

This year’s Alzheimer’s Show was a huge success with a range of exhibitors and experts on hand to share products and services and offer advice to record numbers of members of the public, including family carers and healthcare professionals.

The Law Society Advice Surgeries were new to the show this year, with solicitors on hand offer advice on important tasks like organising Lasting Power of Attorney and the Admiral Nurses were offering advice and support to visitors.

Headline sponsors SweetTree provided some respite in the form of a quiet room as well as talks and debates on dementia, while Re:Cognition Health spoke to the public about its groundbreaking trials for a new drug intended to slow down progression of Alzheimer’s.

Popular TV presenter and Alzheimer’s Society ambassador Angela Rippon appeared on Saturday to host the talks and topics 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 TV crew from the BBC 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 while having fun at the same time.

For the first time, the show played host to an exclusive artwork display called ‘Memorable Icons’, a unique collection of portraits created of famous people – past and present – affected by dementia. Famous icons depicted included Baroness Margaret Thatcher, Sir Harold Wilson, Terry Pratchett, Iris Murdoch, Prunella Scales, Sugar Ray Robinson, Peter Falk and Charles Bronson.
