Coming of Age: Dementia in the 21st Century

Coming of Age is the Dementia Services Development Centre’s 4th International Conference. The conference is aimed at all those who support people with dementia, including doctors, nurses, social workers, allied health professionals, service commissioners, inspectors, planners/architects, paramedics, housing organisations, the police, faith leaders, voluntary and private sector staff and people with dementia.

The International Dementia Excellence Awards ceremony will take place at the conference dinner on 20 October. The awards are designed to recognise organisations and individuals who have worked to improve the quality of life of people with dementia. The awards celebrate the important work being undertaken to support people with dementia internationally and are a celebration of innovation and good practice.
