We’re pleased to announced Dementia Adventure CEO, Neil Mapes, will be speaking at the Natural Connections conference, focused on “Innovative Approaches to Green Care for People Living with Dementia” on 26th April.
The conference will be looking to share and discuss learning, knowledge and innovative solutions relating to enabling people living with dementia to maintain a connection to the natural environment and the outdoors. There will be recent research presented, exploring green dementia care in long-term accommodation and care settings, personal experience of the impact of nature on people living with dementia and programmes and projects that provide nature-based activities for people living with dementia.
There will be speakers from different fields (academics, third sector organisations, housing providers and people living with dementia), workshops and round table discussions. Delegates at this conference will be the first to hear the full findings of two research projects: a pilot study conducted by the HDRC and ADS on green dementia care opportunities, barriers and good practice in long-term accommodation and care settings; the ROAM (Rehabilitation for Outdoor Activity and Mobility) study conducted by Nottingham University.
Duration: 1 day event, 10am-4pm
Fee: £50 per person. Includes refreshments and lunch.
