Dementia UK

Show features

Mobile Virtual Dementia Tour Bus

The tour bus will be at The Alzheimer’s Show Manchester over the 2 days. This innovative training experience, run by training2care, will give professionals, carers and members of the public the opportunity to experience what it is like to have dementia. The Mobile Virtual Dementia Tour takes away people’s primary senses, to let them experience the fear and frustration dementia sufferers go through on a daily basis. It is hoped the experience, which is based in a converted lorry with a tent attached, will show that a person with dementia is not challenging or aggressive.
Sessions are completely free and will run all day.

Dementia UK Admiral Nurses 1-2-1 Clinics

These popular 1-2-1 clinics allow visitors to have a free 25- minute confidential consultation with an Admiral Nurse. Sessions can be booked onsite on the day at the Dementia UK stand F1 and are on a first come first served basis.

The clinics in 2016 were fully booked for both days and were able to offer invaluable advice and support to carers of people with dementia.

Admiral Nurses are mental health nurses specialising in dementia and work with family carers and those affected by dementia in the community.

BAT & Butterfly Vs. Alzheimer’s. Table Tennis

Table Tennis – The World’s Number One Brain Sport! So designated, after extensive clinical studies, by U.S. and Japanese Neuroscientists.

Come and take part in a table tennis challenge with a specifically designed table and bat and discover how this activity can help in the early stages of dementia.

Inspired by the potential, the Bounce Alzheimer’s Therapy (BAT) Foundation, in collaboration with Butterfly, is taking the U.K. initiative, instigating comprehensive ‘Research & Therapy’ Programmes.

The Law Society Free Advice Surgeries

The Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme (WIQS) is the recognised quality mark for legal experts in drafting wills and dealing with matters of probate.

If you care about what happens to your loved ones, property and other assets after you die, you should make a will. But when making a will, it is vital that you get advice you can rely on, especially if you are a care giver or have complex financial affairs.

As part of attending the Alzheimer’s Show, the Law Society is running a series of FREE one to one advice surgeries with highly experienced and qualified solicitors, which can be booked on the day.
