Dementia Essentials seminars

Dementia Essentials seminars - What you need to know about dementia

Each topic will be presented by a subject matter expert, with opportunity for questions and discussion.

These seminars are open to anyone who supports somebody with dementia - you can register for all or just come along to one to find out about a specific topic.
