DH opens 'Dementia Village' to showcase innovation in care

Written by: | Published:

The DH is hosting a dementia event at the Healthcare Innovation Expo at ExCeL London on 13 and 14 of March 2013.

A dedicated area of the exhibition hall will be devoted to a 'Dementia Village' to showcase good practice and innovation in dementia care, dementia friendly communities and research.

The village will contain a main stage for speakers, a village green and bandstand with leisure and entertainment activities to get involved in, and a house demonstrating ways that we can support people with dementia and their carers to live well.

There will be a school hosting workshops and sessions enabling people to become Dementia Friends. A high street will house a number of organisations taking innovative approaches to helping people living with dementia, and a cinema will show dementia-related films. Trevor's Garden will provide a quiet space for delegates and information on the potential benefits of dementia friendly gardens.

Healthcare Innovation Expo is the largest healthcare innovation event in Europe. The main objective of the expo is to encourage the spread of innovations that have a significant impact on improving the quality of patient care and productivity in the UK. There will be a wide range of exhibitors, including DH and many of the new NHS organisations such as the NHS Commissioning Board. There will be a comprehensive seminar programme with more than 100 seminars to choose from. Up to 10,000 delegates are expected to attend over 2 days.
