Details

This session will consider two perspectives on dementia, followed by a discussion with opportunities to put questions to the panel. The first speaker will focus on how research is helping develop strategies for reducing risk for, or even preventing dementia, as well as how current clinical services are bringing preventative strategies close to clinical implementation.

The second speaker will explore the many resources available for people with dementia and their families, and share some tips for living well after diagnosis.
