THE ALZHEIMER’S SHOW RETURNS TO MANCHESTER
Following the success of our first ever Alzheimer’s Show in Manchester two years ago, we are delighted to be returning in 2017.
Whether you are a family carer, care professional or just have an interest in learning more about dementia then this is a must attend event.
The 2 day show at EventCity will feature a wide range of exhibitors showcasing the latest and best products, services, advice and support for those living with dementia, a full conference programme across 3 theatres, practical activities, Admiral Nurses advice clinics and legal surgeries run by The Law Society.
Further support and information to help those with dementia and their carers can be found here on our website. Sign up to our newsletter for exclusive features, practical guides plus an opportunity to save money on a ticket to the show.
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.
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.
