“Most services are just social, they don’t help you back at home where you spend most of your time”. Powerful comments from carer #UKDC2015
Diverse Alzheimers @DiverseAlz
So glad to hear @tide_carers actively seeking to recruit BAME carers and not ‘hard’ or ‘difficult’ mentioned #positives #UKDC2015
#UKDC2015 ‘prisons – not a good place to grow old’. Fascinating topic and some very specific issues and unnoticed difficulties.

I came away feeling very positive, even though many challenges remain. The involvement [of] people living with dementia did feel as though it had really shifted to more than involvement, with real leadership from them.
