The Alzheimer’s Show, the first UK exhibition and conference set up specifically to provide information and solutions to people living with or caring for someone with dementia, took place in London on 19th and 20th April 2013.
Nearly 1,800 people attended over the two days, with 65% of these visitors either having dementia or caring for a family member or friend who has the condition. For many it was an opportunity to listen, share and feel part of a community there to help. Following extremely positive feedback from our exhibitors, excellent speakers, care professionals and family carers, The Alzheimer’s Show will return next Spring in a larger London venue.
