17th April 2013, Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh


The Annual Scottish Caring and Dementia Congress, now in it’s fifth year,  took place on 17th April 2013 at the fantastic Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.

Caring Times and the Journal of Dementia Care have now been running care and dementia based events in Scotland for over thirteen years, and this year’s Congress was the jewel in an already glittering crown. We are delighted with the success of the concept behind the Scottish Caring and Dementia Congress: to bring together on one occasion all those involved in the various strands of care of elderly people for the purpose of networking and learning with each other, from each other and about each other.

The Congress was held on one very busy and auspicious day. It featured expert knowledge, ably imparted from the sectors leading speakers- spread across two plenary sessions and four specialist parallel sessions, catering  for everyone’s interests.
